Looking for a quick lunch? Check out my Salads to Go page for salads that you can pack for lunch or school. All of them are under 400 calories and will bring a bright spot to your busy day. You can pack half of it the night before and finish it in the morning before you leave. I usually eat mine in the early afternoon finishing up computer work from the morning. Looking for a simple vinaigrette or dressing.

This website contains recipes of delicious, easy to make salads that your friends and family will love to eat and ask you to prepare again and again.
