Spinach Salad with Hummus

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.

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!
