Hearty Game Day Salad

Heart Game Day Salad #healthyrecipe #tailgate #easyrecipe #healthylifestyle #foodblogger #saladrecipe

I recall of the times my parents reminded me to eat my greens; let’s mimic on game day!  Most tailgates menu selections you will certainly find meats, breads, and cheeses, but rarely anything green (unless your team colors are green…we see you Baylor Bears).  A Hearty Game Day Salad drizzled with a lemon dressing offers great flavors that satisfies the need for greens and your taste buds.  This recipe is a great way to add plant-based proteins and fiber to your menu. Boost your protein by adding grilled chicken, beef, or shrimp!  

May this fall bring you the most incredible tailgates keeping you healthy, fit, and in line with your goals! Cheers and GO TEAM!
