Who says salads have to be boring? Not me!
Well, at least not me anymore. I used to cringe at salads… but I realized not all salads are created equal. Take this gem for instance. It’s filled with nutrient-rich mixed greens, tangy green apple, creamy avocado, and crunchy almonds. Seriously, this salad is the perfect way to fuel your body with tons of plant-based goodness!
And the strawberry herb dressing is ah-mazing. Seriously, I could drink it. If you want these greens on the go, feel free to prep your salad ahead of time in a mason jar. Simply layer the ingredients in the jar, but store the dressing in a separate container. When you’re ready to eat, pour the dressing on, give the mason jar a good shake, and enjoy!
This recipe is from our amazing Fresh Start (spring) cleanse. Check it out!
