Hearty Lunch Salad Ideas

One of the things that I love to have for lunch is a hearty salad. It just makes my body feel good when I nourish it with some good veggies for lunch. You can get creative with your own salad to use up leftovers you have in the refrigerator. I want to share just a few of my favorite combinations today.

Mexican Salad


  • Spring mix
  • Baked sweet potato, cut into chunks
  • Black beans or pinto beans
  • Avocado
  • Salsa
  • Brown Rice

Layer ingredients in a bowl and enjoy. This is one of my favorite combinations. If you have a little cashew cream, that is a delicious addition as well. Just drizzle it on the top. No need to add dressing to this salad. It’s delicious with all of these wholesome salad toppings.

Mediterranean Salad


  • Spring mix
  • Artichoke hearts
  • Avocado
  • Slivered almonds
  • Garbanzo beans
  • Lupini beans

These are the Lupini beans that I like to use and they are delicious for snacking too. They are very flavorful and again, no need for dressing. They flavors together are delicious. I would love your feedback if you try these salads. Please tag me @itsapegslife.com if you instagram a recipe made from my blog. Enjoy 🙂
