The Busy Salad

by Lauryn on November 9, 2012

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

Black pepper

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 ]
