Salad are such great spring and summer meal (and to be honest I don’t mind them in the fall and winter either!). They are easy, require little or no cooking and can be your whole meal wrapped up into one nice little package!
We eat both dinner and side salads a lot due to the fact that although I love to cook there is simply never enough time when you have kids at home.
You can prep your salad fixings at the beginning of the week and plan to have 2-3 salads per week or have them ready to pack for lunch. They come together very quickly when you have everything washed and ready.
On top of how easy salads are, it’s a great way to get several fruit and veggie servings (which we ALL need more of). Keep avocados, cherry or grape tomatoes, crunchy toppings like nuts or even toasted coconut on hand to “mix up” your mixed greens!
We have several salad recipes at Frugal Living Mom that we would love for you to try out as the weather warms up.
