Posted by Balance In Motion in Recipes

I’m a sucker for a good salad, and this quick and easy chopped salad is one of my favourites. Namely because you can adjust it based on what you have in your fridge.

Versatile and delicious, enjoy this salad with some chicken or beef kabobs. Or add some millet or quinoa and chicken to it for a quick lunch or dinner. It’s also great with feta cheese, so I encourage you to get adventurous.

Make it tonight and let me know what you think!
