Giant Green Salad

A crunchy, summery salad full of green goodness. The perfect mid morning pick me up to fuel your brain. Don’t forget to serve with a portion of protein to ensure this salad keeps you full and satisfied! We suggest adding puy lentils for a nutty taste, chickpeas for a protein punch or quinoa drizzled with lime juice for a tangy, filling bowl.
