Repeat Offender

Keep those entries coming for the giveaway! You have until Friday night to enter. :)


I mentioned a few weeks ago about how I tend to repeat a meal over and over again if I like it. For instance, for breakfast I had a bowl of Greek yogurt, granola and chia seeds for like 3 months straight!


This week though? I'm all about this salad beast!




First of all, you should know that our bowls are deep. This was so darn heavy!


I had this same combination on Monday and Tuesday for dinner...and I can tell you that I'm about to make myself another delicious salad tonight!




I'm not the biggest fan of plain lettuce salads. But when there are loads of fun mix-ins involved, I just can't resist having one. 


This was so filling from the quinoa and chickpeas with a bit of saltiness from the black olives and pickles and sweetness from the strawberries. The pistachios provided a nice little crunch.


Plus it also featured my new favorite salad dressing from Trader Joe's.




I discovered this last week, and I'm almost out! It has a nice little zing to it.


Here's a list of ingredients for the salad:


Lettuce
Quinoa (cooked in low-sodium veggie broth, then refrigerated)
Chickpeas
Avocado 
Black Olives
Strawberries
Pickles
Pistachios


The perfect combination of flavors! I'm off to enjoy one another one of these salads now...


Are you a fan of salads? What's your favorite thing to add to them?
