Incorporating lots of salads into the daily eating plan is a great way to add some bulk, some vitamins, and some color, but it’s easy to get caught up in the same old salad bag routine which just becomes boring. Spice it up a little bit for some variety and interest. This little “recipe” is a super easy way to add some protein, fiber and flavor with VERY LITTLE fat.
Take a mixed green salad bag and add the following:
- 1 cup of canned black beans (you can warm these before adding)
- 1 cup of canned mexican style corn
- Crunchy tortilla strips…I like blue ones….to sprinkle on top
- Salsa or pico de gallo
- Fresh Cilantro
- Lime juice from a fresh lime
You could always top with grilled chicken breast or fish, but this is great as is. You could also top with sliced jicama for additional crunch, in place of the tortilla strips.
