Today I’m sharing my favourite salad recipe EVER.
This salad was born from a fun Instagram challenge I did over the winter. I asked my followers for easy, healthy meal ideas, and boy, did they deliver! I ended up making 18 (!) of the suggestions. One of the suggestions was to make turkey burgers with tzatziki. I ended up putting it on this salad instead of a bun, and I swear – my tastebuds were reborn!
If you’re craving fresh, bright flavours and healthy fare, this is my go-to salad that I think you are going to LOVE.
4 cups romaine lettuce
2 cups cabbage or golden beet slaw mix
2 baby cucumbers, diced
1 avocado, sliced
2 lemon wedges
2 pickle spears
4 tbsp. tzatziki
Fresh herbs such as parsley or dill
Protein of your choice
*My original recipe featured a turkey burger. However a fish filet, grilled shrimp, chicken breast or baked crispy tofu cubes would all work perfectly with this fresh salad. Seafood is my recommendation as that’s what really gives this salad it’s ‘coastal’ feel!
Layer in each bowl: 2 cups romaine, 1 cup slaw, a diced baby cucumber, and half a sliced avocado. Garnish with a lemon wedge, pickle spear, and a sprig of fresh parsley or dill. Serve with your choice of protein on the side, and plenty of tzatziki sauce for dressing.
Serve, enjoy, and feel the health coursing through your veins. So fresh and delicious – I actually crave salad now because of this masterpiece LOL!
Until next time friends,
