Weeknight Salad

“What did you have for supper last night?”

“I had a salad.”

“Man, you must be starving.”

“Not if you do it right.”


This salad is huge. It fills the entire plate with mounds of delicious goodness. 

When I make a salad, which is often, they usually look something like this. Minus the eggs. And on a much smaller scale. 

So I thought I’d share my favorite salad fixings. You know, so you can recreate it at your house. 

What you need: 

  • Your favorite lettuce blend
  • One orange bell pepper, diced
  • One cucumber, diced 
  • Cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • Avocado, diced 
  • Your favorite shredded cheese 
  • 4 boiled eggs 
  • Your favorite salad dressing 

This makes enough for two huge salads. 

I whipped this up after the boyfriend and I went for a run. Today is my 5th running anniversary so I had to go for a run. I haven’t been logging as many miles as I use to, but it felt good to get out there for a quick run. 

Neither of us wanted anything heavy after the run, so this salad was the perfect fit. 

Light and fresh. A delightful supper to start my fifth year running. 

What do you put in your go-to salad?
