Back to Basics..Garden Salad

Summer is here!!!  Let’s give a shout out to Mr. Sun and deep blue skies, shall we? We shall!!  I’m so excited to see the sky. For reals. It’s been a loooong winter here, and summer is just what I needed to boost my attitude and feeling like I’m living in a snow cave.  But, we won’t talk about that.  Instead, we’ll talk about a simple, basic food that is always one of my favorites. (besides chocolate and anything dipped in sugar. :D) 

Enter: Garden Salad.

A garden salad is just that..foods that come from a garden.  Lettuce, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, onions..you get the picture, right?  When I’m hungry, in a rush, but want something that’s good for me, I usually turn to the trusty garden salad.  Loaded with fresh veggies..you just know you’re doing something good for yourself.

 

The best thing about this salad is that you can put virtually anything in it.  I tend to stay on the calmer side and just use the basics.  Tomatoes and cucumbers with little chunks of chicken. They are my friend.  I want to marry them.

But if you’re feeling a little wild, add boiled egg slices, maybe a few sunflower seeds or even some bacon bits.  But for me..I like it plain and simple, and oh so good for you. 🙂
