Simple, healthy, and consistently good, the garden salad is a go-to choice for health-conscious eaters at all times of the year, though it’s especially satisfying in the summer months. But make no mistake, these aren’t the only reasons people love them.
Easy-to-make and effortlessly customizable with your choice of veggies and/or meats, garden salads are flexible for a number of different diets and palates. And, if you’re an at-home gardener, even better! Many of the ingredients used in this salad are commonly grown in small backyard gardens with little-to-no trouble at all.
And if you’re looking to add a special touch to this already-special salad, look no further. By including a crumbled ZENB Veggie Stick in the recipe, you’ll add a delicious, hearty crunch to your refreshing greens — and, of course, you’ll have the best summer salad of 2019.
