<3 DELICIOUS SALADS: EASY & SIMPLE MEAL PREP IDEAS>

Updated: Apr 25


All three salad in this recipe will last up to 3 days and will taste better as time goes on.


I make these on the weekend and assemble everything on my favorite leafy vegetables to make a decadent salad. Also if I am making just a main dish on a weekday, I usually serve one of these salads as a side dish. Each salad requires only 5 steps!


I hope these 3 salads will help your life become a little easier and tastier.


Enjoy!
