I’m always busy & on the go. Sometimes I feel like I never get a moment to myself to breathe. On weekdays not many people have time to run home and cook a healthy, filling lunch. My friend & I created ‘the busy salad’ for when I’m too rushed & need some “fast” food with the proper nutrients. It is delicious & ridiculously easy to make.
Quick skinny tip: after this salad, I always crave something sweet. Keep grapes in a bowl, out in the kitchen. They’re perfect for grabbing when you’re darting out the door. And that “hand to mouth” idea keeps you occupied & satisfied.
The Busy Salad
** Serves two hungry people
Half a head each of romaine lettuce & radicchio lettuce
1 chopped ‘light’ string cheese
7 chopped cherry tomatoes
1/2 diced zucchini
1/2 sliced avocado
Canned tuna fish [ Albacore white tuna in water is my preference ]
[ Dressing: just squeeze half a lemon, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, splash of red wine vinegar ]
