You can do

Steak, chicken, shrimp

Butter lettuce, iceberg lettuce, spinach, ( there are so many choices)

Apples, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, pineapples, oranges.

Almonds, walnuts, and eggs

You can make your on vinaigrette or you can find some in the aisle of your grocery store.  Don’t put so much thought into making a salad, its a simple and healthy lunch or dinner. Throw things that you love on there and enjoy, but of course portion your food.

 

Enjoy!! If you have any Salad Ideas, please share
