Vegetable Salad For Lunch



It was lunch time and I didn't know what to eat. I steamed rice this morning but I didn't feel like eating rice today. I was craving for something light and crunchy in the tummy. Suddenly, I remembered I bought a bag of vegetable salad last weekend and it's waiting to be devoured. I know I have to eat it sooner because the vegetable salad even the sealed and ready to eat one you can buy from the store does not stay fresh long.

So I decided to have a big bowl of vegetable salad. High in fiber, nutrients and vitamins I needed as a breastfeeding mom.  Fortunately I have all of the ingredients I needed. Here's what my vegetable salad consist of:


  • a package of ready to eat vegetables : carrot, red cabbage and lettuce
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • left over baked chicken tender
  • crouton
  • Catalina dressing: rich and tangy


Yum! It was very easy to make, delicious and healthy meal but I think I put too much cheddar cheese. Sometimes  I love adding hard boiled egg to my salad but today I didn't. What I love about making vegetable salad is that I can play with my recipe and add anything I feel like adding like sesame seeds or baked fish fillet. 

How about you? How do you prepare your vegetable salad? Do you have a favorite recipe?

  3. I love salads too, i usually put the bacon instead of the bread crums as i find them too hard to bite at first.

  10. What a healthy and yummy lunch you have. I like dressing up my salad with tangy salad dressing too. It adds a certain flavor to the usually bland veggies.
