Rich and Textured Salads Are My Specialty
I just love to make my salads rich, textured, and different from each other. The key is to add different types of protein: Egg, cold-water/wild-caught fish, nuts, skinless & boneless low-fat meat, beans, etc.
Other times I add these vegetables and fruits that are rich in protein: Broccoli, spinach, green peas, mushrooms, Brussell sprouts, arugula, and fruits: Mandarin orange strips, strawberries, and avocado.
Left picture: Start with shredded lettuce; add one boiled egg, peanuts, and one can of sardine; mix. Middle: Add black olives, shredded carrots, and jalapenos. Right: Mix some more.
Enjoy the soft and crunchy combination!
