This salad is perfect for a side or a meal! It is packed with veggies; protein; and healthy fats, and it's delicious and simple to make. The serving sizes in parenthesis below are for 1 serving if you are eating it as a meal, and you will notice I did not put servings for all of the ingredients, and for good reason. I'm a big advocate for loading up on lower calorie more nutrient dense foods (such as veggies), and using more moderation for more calorie dense foods (such as avocado and oils). This is a great strategy to support you with feeling full longer while consuming less calories, which in return can support with weight management. Plus, increasing your fiber can also help with managing your cholesterol and overall heart health. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
