Along with all salads, I had eaten, I like simple green salads with good protein on top of it. Nice low-calorie food. I have determined the nutritional facts to compare many salads and sandwiches. I have to say that the lunch with salad is better than a sandwich if you want to lose your body fat or want to feel healthy halo over your head.  Sorry if I sound little meanie to you but I like the good feeling after acknowledged that I ate something healthy.

I don’t have a good recipe since there are so many thru Google. I usually check the sites like Cookinglight.com, Delish.com, Foodandwine.com, epicurious.com, and Relish.com for good recipes. I had noticed that they did better with recipes than most sites I had visited and found these two, Cookinglight.com and Foodandwine.com are very useful in my search for a good salad. I am sure that you know which one you love to visit and get a recipe from your favorite website.

Let me borrow a recipe from myrecipe.com, Arugula, and Pear Salad with Toasted Walnuts by Jackie Mills, MS., RD. I knew it was very simple for satisfying lunch along with chicken breast for good protein.
