Full of fresh vegetables, protein-packed legumes, and the healthy fats of avocado, this chopped salad is everything I need to feel good about my eating habits. It tastes great over some mixed greens, cooked quinoa, or completely on its own! The zesty lime flavor keeps it fresh, and you avoid the fat-laden salad dressings being sold on the market today. Plus, there’s avocado and that alone is enough to make it perfect in my book!
