Hearty salad

There are many reasons to eat salad, like salads are healthy, cool, crunchy and easy to make. All you have to do is to mix in some fresh veggies, greens, tomatoes, and a nice salad dressing and your complete meal is ready. However, if your want to give a kick to your salad, you can even add some meats and eggs. My today’s salad recipe is full of proteins and minerals and taste of course.

I call it ‘hearty salad’ because its a fulfilling one meal dish and heart healthy.
