Shan's Simple Salad

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have figured out that I'm part-human, part-rabbit 😂 . Yep, I love my salads, and there are very few vegetables I have met that I don't love (with the exception being okra ... blech!). Over the years, I have upped my vegetable intake significantly (I've come a long way from my bowls of Lucky Charms for dinner during grad school...🙄 ), and you can too! Salads are the simplest and most versatile way to get your 6-9 cups of veggies a day (yes, you read that right!). Read on below to "taste the rainbow" without the candy, sugar and preservatives! Perfect for lunch, or as a side to your favorite dinner dish.
