This healthy salad is so filling could easily be a meal on its own. or even a great side dish.
When we have guests I like to dress up my salad by adding crumbled bacon bits, homemade croutons, crumble feta cheese, or thinly sliced parmesan cheese.
Hope you enjoy this quick & easy salad as much as we do.
