Quick lunches are a must these days, and a loaded salad is a great way to get a healthy bite in fast! Whip up this salad at the beginning of the week, and you’ll be good to go for a few days – even better if you have some leftover protein to throw in!
My kids can eat PB & J 100 times a week, but I can not. I yearn for something with a little bit more substance than the macaroni and cheeses and pancakes that grace our table many lunches of the week. I’ve been trying to whip up something different for myself and my working from home husband. Something with color, flavor, and spices, but also something that I can sneak onto the kids’ plates for added nutrition.
Speaking of kids, my two like this! I know that’s important to all of my parents out there. It’s nice to have food just for us, but it’s also nice when it can feed the whole crew. They love the feta and avocado most, and although this does have chili powder in it, as long as it’s a mild variety it’s not overpowering. This isn’t part of the recipe, just a parenting hack – if I dollop yogurt or sour cream on anything, my kids will more than likely eat it. A nice blob of plain Greek yogurt would go nicely with this salad!
