Salad A La “Un-boring”

IMG_8707

Salads don’t have to be boring!  Try thinking outside the box and take a look in your fridge for leftovers that you can throw together to create an amazing salad bowl full of vitamins, minerals and healthy fats just like this one.  Foods like whole grain pasta, quinoa and roasted veggies can also be made ahead of time to help you pull something together fast.

If you make some pasta ahead of time like I did, just make sure to coat it in a bit of olive oil  and mix it up before putting it in the fridge so it doesn’t stick together.  I used leftover pasta, quinoa and roasted butternut squash I had in the fridge for my kids along with avocado, goat cheese, sunflower seeds and greens.

Top it with a homemade dressing and VOILA!  Amazing  🙂
