Summer Power Salad

Jump to Recipe

Loaded Salads are my jam! They pair perfectly with a grilled ribeye and also work as a meal on their own. VERSATILITY! They’ve been consistently making appearances here on WGC the last few years and this summer power salad is right up there with the rest of them.

Loaded with everything you could ask for - and all of which I snagged from my favorite Santa Monica farmers market. It’s exactly what I want for lunch or dinner every day for the rest of the season. You could add some grilled chicken or salmon on top, perhaps a few pieces of shrimp, or steak. The possibilities are endless. You could also forgo the protein and just stick to the base salad like I’m posting below. It’s perfection and to be honest, it doesn’t need anything else!

Rock the power salad this year and you’ll feel fab!

  1. It's soooo hot and humid here in Kansas City...there's just no way to even think about firing up the oven. That's why I just love this delicious, healthy salad. Can't wait to give it a go soon. 🙂
