This garden salad makes a perfect side dish or main course. It’s filling, refreshing and totally healthy!
When you first start to eat clean, it’s easy to rely on salads because you know they are healthy.
The problem I run into now that I am publishing this blog is that I often forget that salads are a great way to go. I get so wrapped up in creating new meals, that I tend to forget about the simple ones that don’t need as much creative imagination. So I thought I would share with you a salad that I made the other day.
I’ve really been craving lettuce for some reason over the past week, so I just went with it and dove into a huge bowl of it. I mean, there could be worse things to be craving and indulging in, right?
Add a little chicken or tuna to this and you’ve got a full meal!

I love salads because they’re so easy to experiment with when it comes to ingredients. And they’re perfect during a hot summer. Haven’t tried kidney beans in salad yet. But this recipe looks great!
p.s. Love your blog! 🙂
Marjorie – You’re right. Salads are the perfect summer dish. In fact, I’m making my Citrus Celery Salad for dinner tonight. Salads are a great “make ahead” dish too.
Thanks for stopping by!
That looks beautiful. I agree with what you are saying too. Sometimes we get so caught up in trying to make things spectacular that we forget the simplest things can be not only the most beautiful, but the most delicious.
Annmarie – So true! And this salad WAS delicious, if I do say so myself! lol
Trude – Thanks!
