Protein-packed Rainbow Salad

I definitely have a thing for salads. They’re easy to make and you really can throw whatever you want into them. Clearly, I like to pack mine with a ton of veggies and protein, especially post-workout.

My favorite kinds of salads are filled with colors and textures and this one is no different. This may look complicated or difficult to make but thing is, it’s SO easy! All you need to do is take the time to chop your veggies and from there, it just gets thrown in a bowl over lettuce (or lined up neatly like a rainbow). Let me know if you try it!
