A Simple Salad

There are just some days that ones doesn't really feel like cooking much...unfortunately, one still has to eat. So what's to do? On a college budget, most rely on fast food. unfortunately, with a gluten free diet, that is pretty much out unless you want a burger patty with some veggies on top (Believe me, it's as disgusting as it sounds). So what to do? Whip yourself up a salad! All you need are a few base ingredients, and you can add whatever you would like to it to make a tasty flavor combination!

Just start with a bed of greens. That's it. You can choose what kind of greens you enjoy. They come in theses handy bags that are all ready to be tossed into your bowl right in the produce section of your favorite grocer!

Here are some suggested topping combinations:

Strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, feta, and a vinaigrette
Leftover grilled chicken, parm cheese, Cesar dressing
Eggs, bacon bits, and ranch dressing
Leftover taco meat, tomatoes, cheese, avocado, and ranch dressing

There are an endless amount of possibilities when it comes to salad, and they can be quite satisfying with the right ingredients. It's also a good way to use up some of those leftovers that have been chilling in your fridge. So be creative and have fun with your salad!
