The perfect protein-filled lunch!
Confession: I ate this salad almost every day for lunch last week. Yup, it happened. And it was awesome. Keeping salad exciting is so key to making yourself actually want to eat it on a regular basis. Which is why I have about a million different salad recipes, all of which I will obviously be sharing with you guys. Because, sharing is caring. 💕 For today, this southern-style salad is legit the easiest thing to make, and is the perfect food to prep on Sunday night for a week of healthy lunches. It is time consuming being a girl boss, and so it is important that we prepare for that!
Okay I would also like to say that I am the master of balsamic salad dressing. Not only does it taste freakin’ bomb on this southern style salad, it is my go-to dressing for pretty much any salad I make. It is a recipe that you need in your life.
Let’s get to it friends.
Skinny Belle Balsamic Dressing
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 tbsp real maple syrup (you guys KNOW how rageful I get about that Aunt Jemimas crap. None of that here. None of fit I say!)
- 1 dollop of horseradish mustard (about 1/3 tbsp)
- pinch of garlic powder
- pinch of salt
- pinch of fresh ground pepper
Dressing instructions: Put in cup. Shake about like a mad woman for a few seconds. Taste, enjoy.
- Kidney beans
- Corn (I used corn from a can, because I’m hood like that.)
- Diced purple onion
- Cherry tomatos, halved
- Leafy green lettuce!
- Salt + fresh cracked pepper for topping
Put all dat awesomeness in a bowl. Pour awesome dressing on the awesomeness. Toss the awesomeness. Enjoy and thank me later babes 😉
