I like to sometimes have meat in my salads, so I decided to choose a healthier meat for this salad. I chose pink salmon. Everybody knows how to toss together a salad, so I am not going to go into detail about to put this salad together.
Here is what I used:
So, I tossed together all of the ingredients, excluding the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and the tangy mustard; those three ingredients will be used for the vinaigrette. I tore the kale for the salad, I peeled the beets thin with a peeler, and I sprinkled some half cooked quinoa on the salad. I threw in chopped tomatoes, cut up avovado and tossed it on the salad, along with a sprinkling of sunflower seeds. Lastly, I shredded up some salmon, and sprinkled it on the salad. I whisked together a little bit of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and the tangy mustard to make a delicious vinaigrette.
Super easy to toss together, it is my favorite lunch now, and I feel better that I am including veggies in my diet, and I am getting those needed nutients. I have always been a fan of salads, but I would top them with croutons, and creamy, fatty dressings, cheeses, things that fatten up a salad. I thought to myself, why not make the "goodies" in the salad delicious veggies, and nutritious foods to dress up the salad? So, I believe I have been doing a pretty good job with keeping up on bettering my health and bettering my diet. I am going to create more healthy recipes, and I am eager to share them with my readers. I have a lot of great posts planned for this week, I hope I can get around to them. It is a busy week of appointments, school, and work, so I will try and keep up on blogging.
