Easy Lunch Box Salad
This is a really simple ”throw together” lunch or salad option. great for a snack or can be bulked out with soem extra protein (sliced chicken, cooked salmon or even some boiled eggs). i actually think this is a great, nutritious salad option for a BBQ too!
I use this as a speedy mid-week meal prep option because it takes about 5 minutes to do! I prep the first half of the ingredients in bulk And store in individual containers and then top with the remaining ingredientS each morning. This ensures those last few ingredients are still fresh and vibrant on the day you eat them and it’s worth the extra 2 minutes that takes. You can’t escape the nutritious benefits of this salad- packed with wholesome veggies and protein-rich chickpeas and feta. Yum!
