Vegetarian Southwest Salad
This is my go-to weeknight dinner (also works as a nutritious lunch) after a long day at work. Feel free to add or subtract veggies: sliced or grated carrots, chopped tomatoes, sliced green peppers, or sliced radishes, for example, would work well here. Whatever you like.
Many times I'll keep this meal vegetarian and eat it along with a slice of crusty bread. Other times I'll add a small portion of canned tuna (I love love love Genova brand packed in olive oil), or canned sardines, or a handful of cooked shrimp, or a couple of cut-up chicken tenders.
If you're super tired or otherwise don't feel like making the dressing from scratch, I recommend Newman's Own Light Honey Mustard. 2 tbsp will cost you only 70 calories, the ingredient list is free or weirdness and MSG, and it's nearly as delicious as the real thing.
This is a hearty salad packed with fiber, vitamins, protein and healthy fat. Enjoy!
