“Sometimes you feel like a nut…”🎶

As I’m adding some peanuts to my salad today, that catchy tune popped into my head. More often that not, I add nuts to my salads. Today it is a simple handful of dry-roasted Planter’s Peanuts. I have different nut mixtures ready to go, however, so that way I can mix it up and have a variety of flavors on salads.

Nuts proteinToday’s salad is loaded with a variety of goodness, including:

  • Mixed greens
  • Beets
  • Lemon cucumber
  • Hummus
  • Mini bell pepper
  • Chia seed
  • Kalamata olives
  • Dijon Balsamic dressing

I love a variety of texture and flavor, so that’s why my salads are often loaded. Look for fun ways to make your salad an explosion of flavor, texture and taste. If you want some crunch, definitely add some peanuts. How are you adding protein to your salad today?

I’ll see you at the table!
