It's NATIONAL SALAD MONTH!

Happy National Salad Month!


May is finally upon us and June is quickly approaching! Before we let this month get away I wanted to share my top 3 salad recipes, since May is National Salad Month!

Now that the weather is getting warmer a salad is a great way to cool down. The crisp bite of the lettuce can be so refreshing.


All 3 of these recipes are quick, simple, and so easy to make, which is why they have become my go-to’s. I honestly don’t know which one I love more, they are all so good! They require minimal work and can be made ahead of time.

I generally do not measure out my veggies or the salad add-ons. I say the more veggies and add-ons the better!



Salad #1 Roasted Brussel Sprout

Ingredients

  1. Lettuce of choice (I prefer a romaine blend)

  2. Shredded carrots

  3. Shaved almonds

  4. Cranberries

  5. Shredded parmesan cheese

  6. Brussel sprouts

  7. Protein (if desired)

Dressing

  1. ¼ Greek yogurt

  2. ½ tbps Honey mustard (dijon also works)

  3. 4 tbsp Balsamic

  4. Garlic

  5. 2 tbps Olive Oil

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F

  2. Prep and cook your protein of choice if needed - I like to cook my protein ahead of time. So if it’s already cooked you’ll just have to warm up.

  3. While oven is preheating start to prep your Brussel sprouts

  4. Cut and halve the Brussel sprouts

  5. Place into a baking dish

  6. Drizzle with some olive oil

  7. Season to taste

  8. Once oven is ready - bake for 30-40 (depending on oven and how crispy you like them)

  9. While Brussel sprouts are cooking start making your dressing

  10. Blend Greek yogurt, mustard, balsamic, olive oil, and garlic

  11. Set aside

  12. Begin to build your salad

  13. Layer lettuce with carrots, almond, cranberries, parmesan cheese

  14. Once Brussel sprouts are cooked let them cool a little then layer on salad

  15. Add protein if any

  16. Top with desired amount of dressing and enjoy!
