Creamy Cucumber Dill Dressing

Salads make a great lunch meal or a healthy side dish for dinner. A salad can be quite nutritious and easy to make. Here are some tips for quickly making easy, healthy salads:

  1. While at the grocery store, grab the baby spinach or lettuce options that are already pre-washed.
  2. Make sure to also buy salad toppings such as carrots, celery, broccoli, cucumbers, onions, peppers, tomatoes, peas, beans, nuts, and dried or fresh fruit.
  3. As soon as you get home, wash and cut as many toppings as you can. Combine them into small bags (excluding items such as cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, etc.) for a quick salad.
  4. Make your own dressing (below is a recipe you can start with), and divide it into small condiment containers.
  5. When it comes time to eat, just throw some spinach or lettuce on your plate, add a bag of toppings, add extra toppings that are better not prepared ahead of time, such as cheese, tomatoes, fresh fruit, etc., and add a small container of your homemade dressing.
  6. Then, sit back and enjoy this healthy meal that only took a few minutes to prepare!
