3 Awesome Summer-Fresh Salads !

As the weather warms salads become more appealing! The fresh produce, the juicy ingredients and of course the health factor.

Here are 3 salads I’ve been making forever! Especially in the summer.

  1. The Quinoa Bowl

Easy & delicious! You can mix up the ingredients in this to best suit you. Essentially you boil quinoa, let it sit. Then top with veggies, cheese, beans etc. There’s no stopping !

1/2 cup chickpeas

Ground pepper

Large handful baby spinach

1 tsp avocado oil

1/4 fresh lemon

Heat a pan with coconut oil. Slice your chicken breast and place into the pan with chickpeas and parsley. Ground pepper over top and cover. Keep on medium heat.

Drizzle the avocado oil over top of the spinach. Squeeze the fresh lemon on top as well and mix.

The chicken and chickpeas should cook for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked all the way through.

Once done, place over spinach. Sprinkle the feta cheese over chicken and slice the green onion and add.

3. Apple & Egg Salad

Mix the avocado oil and arugula. Dice the parsley and add. Then ground some pepper and mix.

Slice the apple and place on top of arugula. Sprinkle the pecans and blue cheese on top as well.

Now peel and slice the hard boiled egg and put into the salad.
