Harvest Mixed Greens Salad

Big salads are so versatile – they are loaded with fresh veggies or add cooked meat to create a more substantial meal. When I look in my fridge with ingredients to use, I either think entrée salads or stir fry. In this case, I thought of a salad. My favorite way for salad is with cooked chicken and any leftover ingredients to use up! Dress up your salad to look spectacular – star of the table. Either lay out the ingredients in a row or create sections on top of the salad. You can truly use any vegetables you love – plus with utilizing your produce farm bag, you can really taste the farm fresh flavors from the earth!

Make ahead and meal prep for the week. Arrange mixed greens and veggie toppings in tupperware and whisk the dressing on the side. Make a few at a time so they’re ready for grab-and-go meals – quick and easy.
