Pool side lunch – salad combos!

Hanging out at the pool all summer? We have swim team, dive team, and many times kiddos we think are half fish! Needless to say, we’re at the pool. A lot. If you’re not looking for pool side lunch options, this would also be a great go-to for a delicious cool salad for the summer. Hope you enjoy this quick and easy guide to YUM!

This combo is a direct result of scavenging through the fridge and grabbing what sounded good.  Ironically – every bit of it came from Costco. Who says we have to be gourmet chefs to have good food, fast?!

Spinach topped with:

  • Costco pre-shredded chicken
  • Apple chips
  • Walnuts
  • Feta
  • Blueberries
  • Honey mustard dressing (that’s my fave and I use it on everything but poppy seed would have been good too).

It was delicious and I’m definitely adding it to my rotation to break out of my lunch time rut.

Here’s a quick formula I use for a satisfying salad that lasts through the afternoon!

I posted about this on the PowerFull Fitness Facebook page and some PowerFull ladies shared their favorite salad combos too.  Love the community we have that shares great ideas! For a bonus recipe try Paige’s combo.  

The beauty of her combo is that the quinoa can be made ahead of time and used throughout the week. This is a great time saving tip!
