21 make ahead salads that are perfect for meal prep…not to mention tasty, healthy, and packed full of veggies!
Hi hi hi! It’s round-up time again, and I’m pretty darn excited about this one because one of my favorite ways to meal prep is to make one big &%$ salad at the start of the week and snack my way through it.
Salads are the perfect meal prep recipe for the summer too, because it’s so nice to eat something cold and refreshing and they’re packed full of all the amazing produce you can find this time of year
Not only that, but these make ahead salads are just so versatile: they can be lunch, a main course or a side, and often these salads will taste better as they sit and marinate together in the fridge!
Now one tip on these recipes…some of the salads included contain avocado. Make sure to leave it off until just before serving, otherwise it will brown. Other than that, here are 21 make ahead salads that will be absolutely perfect to incorporate into your summer meal prep routine!
