It’s no secret that I love salads. You could put an entire slice of pizza on a bed of lettuce and it would make me happy. Maybe it’s because they are colorful and remind me of summer. Today, I’m sharing my top 15 favorite “at-home” salad fixes! Salads are a great way to get your veggie fix, protein fix, and they keep you full longer. Salads save me from snacking and diving into the cereal box at night. They never get boring because there are so many ways to create them! Not to mention, they’re super inexpensive. You can buy a ton of ingredients and make salads all week long, or use dinner leftovers for toppings.
