It probably won’t surprise you to learn that many people find salads boring, or not filling enough to eat as a meal.
I can relate. In the past, a bowl of leafy greens was never something I wanted to eat as a stand-alone dish; it was more of a side. Now I think about my fruits and vegetables a little differently, since I know how vital they are for my health, but I also know how to make them more interesting and filling.
My spiralizer has really helped, as it allows me to add different textures to salads. I also like to add nuts and seeds to make the dish more filling.
This recipe is no different.

This salad also pairs so well with a springtime herb pull-apart bread – check out the recipe here.
