Nutty Cheesy Salad

Nutty Cheesy Salad | A fabulous light dinner with lots of veggies and grilled chicken and NUTS! #salad #recipe

Prior to this lovely surprise pregnancy, I was on a salad binge. I ate salads for lunch every single day. I could not get enough veggies and yumminess. Then...SURPRISE. I got pregnant. Most of the time, I ate chicken on my salads at lunchtime...then I suddenly hated chicken. It always tasted like it was 3 days old (like leftovers) and microwaved...no matter how it's cooked. This quite literally drove me insane. Thankfully, second trimester is being kind to me and I can eat chicken again. AND COMMENCE SALAD EATING! I never stopped eating a crapton of veggies. This pregnancy has been very kind with cravings - veggies and fruit, please!

We had this salad prior to pregnancy for dinner one night and it was super super good. I typically will eat almonds and/or sunflower seeds on my salad. In fact, most of my salads are very similar to this...except that we used a ton of nuts to make it extra nutty. And it was fabulous!
