This is probably one of my new favorites! I just love these flavors so much. You can eat this salad alone, put it in a wrap if you are on the go, or get creative and add it to spaghetti squash or noodles to make for a noodle stir fry. The flavor of this dressing is out of this world. You would never guess it is made from all good, clean ingredients. Bonus, it is Whole 30 compliant! Might as well double this recipe. You won’t regret it.

How I could use this recipe for Lunch

  • Prepare according to the package 4 oz of crispy Caulipower Chicken (l love the air fryer method)
  • Use one fiber filled wrap. I love Xtreme Wellness wraps.
  • Lay your wrap out flat and layer vegetables on the bottom. Top with your prepared protein, drizzle of dressing, and garnish with cilantro.

How I could use this recipe for Dinner

  • Use prepared Spaghetti Squash and saute with the vegetable mixture.
  • Drizzle with sauce

You can keep this so simple and just eat the salad and dressing alone.  Add nuts or seeds, protein, wrap, you name it. This was just two ways I enjoyed it. 
Meal Prep Tip* Make the dressing ahead and time and store in the fridge up to a week. 
You can also prepare your vegetables in advance and they should be good for about 4-5 days refrigerated in an airtight container.
