As the temperatures rise, you may find yourself wanting to eat more fresh salads for
lunch or dinner during the week. It is not always easy to grab a salad as you run
out the door in the morning for work. With a little prep, you can have a salad to-go
for a healthy lunch on the run.
Salads can be packed with healthy, fresh vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, onions,
tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. Keep in mind a variety of colors means a variety
of nutrients. Always make sure to add protein to your salad with beans, lean meat such as chicken or turkey breast, tuna, or cheese. You can
rinse and drain canned beans ahead of time for an easy source of protein. Consider
cooking larger batches of baked or grilled chicken breast to slice for salads throughout
Here’s a basic salad recipe that you can adapt to include your favorite dressing and
Share your favorite salad combination by calling the Little River County Extension
