Salads are so quick to make (We defy you to spend more than five minutes making this one.), and you can save yourself more time by making two at once: one to eat immediately, and one for the next day.


Tailor your salad to your likes and change it up on occasion to give your body a wide variety of nutrients and your taste buds fresh new flavors!
