Easy Chopped Salad with Avocado and Hearts of Palm Recipe

Choppedsalad2

Most of the time, if I’m being completely honest, my go-to lunch or dinner is a big salad. Why? Salads give me the most bang for their buck. They require minimal effort (especially if you’ve prepped some veggies earlier in the week), and they’re full of healthy ingredients and flavours. Fibre, antioxidants, protein, phytonutrients, healthy fats, salads can have it all.

As for the dressing, this one is meant to be fast and easy. Whisk all the ingredients together with a fork and pour on top right before eating. If this is a main course salad (as mine usually are), you may want to add a protein. Grilled chicken, chickpeas or black beans would make excellent options.
