    Summer Salads

    I commonly throw whatever is in the vegetable drawer into an airtight container for lunches. About a year ago, the combination for Almond Cranberry Salad ended up being lunch and it has become one of my favorite flavor combinations.

    While most would think of this flavor combination being fall, I think it is more of a summer salad. Light and flavorful, not heavy and dull. And I absolutely love that it as a random assortment of ingredients that came together.

    Salad Meal Prep

    To make Almond Cranberry Salad for lunches I line up 5 airtight containers and go down the line adding each ingredient. I put the dressing in a smaller airtight container separate (to not mush up the salad) and then I have lunch for the week all ready to go.

    It’s the perfect salad for meal prepping because it takes no time at all and it will stay fresh throughout the week.

    This means you can have a carefree week not worrying about what to eat or having to create a meal the next day, because you’ve already prepared yourself a healthy delicious meal!
