One of my favorite salads in the world is the classic salad from Panera. It’s simple, super healthy, and the dressing is to die for. So, I made my own copy cat version of it, with an addition of some fresh berries, for my two upcoming long work days.
Typically, I use whatever dinner leftovers I have as part of my work meal prep, but since I drank a hefty amount of vodka yesterday with some friends, I decided to be lazy today. I’ve paired some homemade salmon salad with this classic salad, and of course accompanied by some chocolate ;).
Boiled eggs are an absolute must in my house and I always have at least 1 dozen eggs in the refrigerator at all times. Unfortunately, my husband loves boiled eggs a little too much, so you’ll often find me muttering obscenities under my breath as I go to pack my lunch at 5:30 AM and realize I’m short an egg.
With that said, there are no excuses not to be able to meal prep! This took me a quick 5 minutes to put together and I’ve got really yummy meals for the next two days. Hoping you all enjoy and please let me know what you think!
My salmon salad
– 1 can organic, wild-caught salmon mixed with 2 tbsp of organic spicy brown mustard, topped with Old Bay seasoning to taste.
Classic salad copy-cat style
– Big handful of organic spring and romaine mix, topped with chopped red onion, strawberries, cucumbers, and blueberries. I used a yogurt-based balsamic dressing from Publix (contains less fat/sugar than regular balsamic vinaigrette).
