Colorful Southwest Salad

Hey y’all!

I’m not kidding when I say that I could have a salad or sandwich for every meal for the rest of my life.

I love salads and how much you can do with them and that really no two salads are the same.

My most current obsession is this AH-MAZING southwest salad that I’ve been eating basically every day.

What You’ll Need to Know:

My biggest piece of advice for this salad is to go ahead and just prep. I cut up a TON of veggies ahead of time and just keep them stocked up in my refrigerator so I just have to measure out the vegetables and throw them into the salad. Doing this especially helps when I’m on the go and don’t have a ton of time to prep a delicious and healthy lunch.

Also, this salad is equally delicious without meat too, so it is a great vegetarian meal as well.

This yummy salad is only 10 weight watchers points, and is incredibly filling – which is what I look for in a meal.

I hope you enjoy!

xoxo,

Cara
