Salads are a healthy choice of lunch. Salads can be as exciting as you want to make them. I often use a lettuce base. Lettuce is great for testing various toppings. Iceberg lettuce is my number one choice. Furthermore, lettuce has got great form and is versatile. Usually I will add various vegetables and fruits. Certain leftovers, can also be used for salads. You can also add; red peppers, spring onions, avocado, strawberries, kiwis, mangoes, blended nuts and seeds.
Serve with a homemade dressing like 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 1 part each of apple cider vinegar and honey. An alternative is to mix, olive oil with balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper and freshly mashed garlic. If you want more protein, add grilled chicken. Viola, you have an exquisite home-made lunch.
