Salad Time

With longer days and sun, it puts me in the mood for more salads. Been taking a salad to work everyday for the past two weeks. It's generally a base of spinach or spring mix greens topped with a variation of the following : dried cranberries, cherry tomatoes, carrots, cucumbers, sliced boiled egg, chopped up ham, salmon, pulled roasted chicken, candied pecans, almonds, red peppers, corn, avacado, or mushrooms.

I've been loving a dressing of plain balsamic vinegar, olive oil and honey. There's other variety of salad dressings too. I just make sure to load up on all kinds of veggies, add a protein, and make sure there's a bit of fat (dressing) to help absorb some of those fatty vitamins.
