Energizing Protein-Powered Salad




I’m always looking for delicious, healthy, and quick lunch recipes! I have a yummy salad to share with you -- feel free to add other ingredients you like (roasted red peppers, pepitas, or more hard-boiled eggs, or dairy-free cheese, for example)!



Energizing Protein-Powered Salad

(makes 2-4 servings)


● 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar


● 2 tsp Dijon mustard


● 1 garlic clove, minced


● ¼ tsp each salt and pepper


● ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil


● 8 cups salad greens


● 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, rinsed and halved or quartered


● 1 cup rinsed no-salt-added chickpeas


● 2 celery stalks, chopped


● 1 carrot, sliced


● 1 avocado, chopped


● 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped



In a large bowl, add the vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the oil, whisking until well combined.


Add the salad greens, chickpeas, celery, carrot, avocado, and eggs and toss to coat with dressing.


All that’s left to do is sit down and devour it. :-)


Enjoy!
