I work from home several days each week so I’m always experimenting with quick, easy, healthy lunches. This is one of my favorites, it’s basically a salad I created using the items I always have on hand and it literally takes about 5 minutes to put together.
Fresh Baby Spinach
Goat Cheese Crumbles
Cindy’s Kitchen Fresh Avocado Vinaigrette
A few notes:
The salad dressing is from Whole Foods and it’s a little pricy, but I just use a little so it lasts awhile (it has a little spice to it so you don’t need much) and it completely makes the salad. Absolutely worth the cost.
I use whatever flavor of hummus I have on hand, artichoke & garlic or black bean & lime are my 2 favorite hummus flavors in this salad.
The ingredients listed here are the staples but for variety I toss in whatever other fruits and veggies I have lying around, depending on what sounds good that day, carrots, cucumber, avocado, even cranberries.
For a little extra protein, this salad is great with tuna or grilled chicken as well.
Just combine everything on a plate and enjoy!
It has been a really busy, really fun summer!! Between buying my first house, lots of visits from family, awesome trips, exciting stuff going on at work, and life in general, I haven’t had as much time for cooking (and posting) as I would like. I have come up with some new recipes lately though and I’m excited to post the new recipes (along with a lot of others I have been meaning to post) the next time I make them to take pictures, which should be really soon!
In the meantime, here is my current inspiration for coming up with new recipes, the only room actually completely set up in my new home, my new kitchen!
