Healthy Greens Salad Recipe

Salad… if made well can be tasty, healthy and simple! Nothing complicated, nothing that takes time to cook, nothing rich, nothing that makes you feel heavy. This salad is a quick fix with healthy ingredients and a simple process… so you get the best of both worlds!

So if you are in a hurry but want to have a good breakfast before stepping out for the day then this is a healthy salad to start with… the HEALTHY GREENS as I have named it.
