Now, if you work from home like me, salads make a perfect and healthy meal but then I really don’t want to be eating the salad day after day. I want variety and this 5 Minutes Protein Packed Summer Salad is one of my favorite.

It has everything from greens, antioxidants, crunch, meat and a healthy base like couscous and quinoa. Apart from all that, I’m making this ‘Honey-Orange Vinaigrette’ to add that extra touch of summer or healthy glow as I call it.

Trust me, once you try this ‘Honey-Orange Vinaigrette’, you’d want to drizzle it over Everything!!! It is tangy-sweet and just perfect on salads to fruits or even a piece of toasted bread.

Apart from all these delicious ingredients, I’m also adding some extra crunch with roasted cashews and chili-lime peanuts.
