Simple Formula for a Gluten-Free Salad

Salmon Salad with Strawberries

One of the items on the menu this month is the salad pictured above, with baked salmon, strawberries, pecans, green beans & feta cheese. I love having salads for meals and thought I would share with you a formula I use when putting together filling salads as a meal:

Greens + Veggie + Fruit + Cheese or Avocado + Protein (nuts, beans, egg, meats)

Here are some sample combos:

  • Arugula + Celery + Pears + Blue Cheese + Walnuts
  • Mixed Greens + Bell Pepper + Jicama + Sliced Flank Steak
  • Spinach + Corn + Tomatoes + Cheddar + Avocado + Black Beans + Grilled Chicken
  • Butter Lettuce + Broccoli + Apples + Cheddar + Boiled Eggs
  • Romaine + Cucumber + Tomato + Onion + Olives + Feta + Tuna
  • Mixed Greens + Cucumber + Dried Cranberries + Goat Cheese + Pecans
  • Napa Cabbage + Green Onions + Carrots + Mandarin Oranges + Chicken
  • Arugula + Grapes + Blue Cheese + Pecans + Turkey Breast
  • Spinach + Bell Pepper + Mushrooms + Avocado + Pumpkin Seeds + Salmon
  • Mixed Greens + Boiled Potatoes + Green Beans + Olives + Tuna
