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.

It is tangy-sweet and just perfect on salads to fruits or even a piece of toasted bread.

So go ahead and try this 5 Minutes Protein Packed Summer Salad with homemade Honey-Orange vinaigrette and make it a part of your lunch or picnic menu.

You can meal prep this salad in advance, just chop and pack the ingredients in separate ziploc/small boxes and mix everything when ready to serve.

For Picnics, you can carry the salad in the icebox and serve immediately upon reaching.
