Okay so here are the facts:
It’s hot out. Really hot out.
You spent last night eating ice cream straight out of the carton while watching recaps of Olympic gymnastics. You may have also watched recaps of the 1996 Olympic gymnastics. You may also have watched an entire documentary on Dominique Moceanu on YouTube.
Oh, you did this, too? What a coincidence!
Here are a couple of my absolute favorite salad recipes. From my hot kitchen to your hot kitchen. I can’t promise they will give you Olympic gymnastic skills, but I like to think it’s a step in the right direction.
Mediterranean Quinoa Salad. So healthy and filling! I can practically feel the back handsprings now.
Wheat Berry Salad with Smoked Mozzarella and Corn. So chewy and full of cheese, too. What’s not to love?
Grilled Peach, Chicken and Goat Cheese Salad with Honey Balsamic Dressing. I don’t know what the best part of this salad is….the juicy grilled peaches, the creamy goat cheese or the fact that the chicken involves zero cooking time (since you buy it rotisserie-style from the store!). Amen.
Kale Salad with Avocado, Oranges and Almonds….to which I affectionately refer to as the “detox” salad and stuff my face with after a rather long weekend filled with yummies. You should, too.
Quinoa, Corn and Lentil Salad. A blast from the past (original recipe was created back in 2010), but still so good. And you’ll build big muscles from all the protein! Perfect for gymnasts in training. Or just you after your neighborhood walk.
Whole Wheat Mediterranean Pasta Salad. I ate this salad approximately 93430 times in college and never grew sick of it. It’s a keeper!
Spicy Crunchy Asian Slaw. Your new favorite coleslaw recipe…without all that mayonnaise. Highly addictive and….very crunchy!
