Fridge Clean Out Salad

You know those times when you’re traveling or been so busy it feels like forever since you ate at home? When eating out it’s not as easy to make the heathy swaps you can from the comfort of your own kitchen. I was in much need of a healthy and light salad, so last week I decided to do a fridge clean out by throwing everything I had into a salad for lunch. This is what I ended up with:

Ingredients:

  • 1 romaine head
  • 1 broccoli head, diced and then steamed, then put in the fridge to cool
  • Hand full of cherry tomatoes (or grape)
  • Snap peas
  • Diced carrot
  • Diced cucumber
  • Purple cabbage
  • Cashews
  • Sesame seeds
  • Protein of choice (I had leftover halibut)

Dressing: (This was a little guess and check w/ no measurements but turned out with the perfect amount of spice– which for me is a little spicier than most:))

  • Dash of Honey mustard salad dressing
  • Squeeze of Dijon Mustard
  • Little squeeze of lemon
  • Finished with a little chipotle sauce

You can also skip the halibut and make it a Meatless Monday option by adding tofu, tempeh, or beans! Here’s to a good start to the week!
