As simple as salad can be, sometimes all that prepping and chopping can make getting your daily veggie intake daunting. At the beginning of each week, we like to prepare a big batch of chopped salad to make getting enough greens a no-brainer.
Here's a quick recipe to try this week:
3 heads Romaine, chopped, cleaned and spun dry
1 red pepper, diced
1 hot house cucumber, seeds removed, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1/2 can hearts of palm, chopped
1 can chick peas, drained and rinsed
Layer all the ingredients (starting with the lettuce) in a large air-tight container. The salad will last for several days in the fridge, just add dressing of choice as you go.
