Summer Salad Frenzy

now that I'm working 12+ hour days and only really about to start the really time-consuming clerkships, I've asked an expert for some advice on adding some more delicious veggies to my every day in a way that doesn't require a ton of time or money.

bring on the deliciousness!

Here's some quick salad recipes with which to experiment:

start with your favorite salad mix:
I like half spring mix/half spinach +hearts of romaine

Veggie (or Beef) Taco Salad
beans, tomato, tortilla chips, avocado, green peppers, onions
add some nonfat greek yogurt for extra yum
if you have salsa that's all you need

Garden Salad
colored peppers, cucumbers, tomato, carrots
olive oil/vinegar dressing

Chinese Salad
chicken, purple cabbage, carrots, tortilla chips
soy sauce/sesame oil dressing

Mediterranean Salad
precooked pasta, tomatoes, feta/any kind of cheese

Thanksgiving Salad
red peppers, goat cheese, walnuts, dried cranberries
turkey/chicken optional
olive oil/vinegar

Sweet Potato Salad
baked sweet potato cut up in pieces
dried cranberries, celery

Fish Salad
asparagus, carrots,
(apparently they have the highest omega-3 content and lowest mercury level of any fish)
