Wedge Salad with Cilantro Dressing


I don't know about you but I ate one too many treats during the Superbowl. I was probably eating my feelings...poor Broncos. But I'm ready to get back on track with healthy eating!

A quick meal doesn't always mean you need to pick up fast food and a healthy meal doesn't mean it takes 1 hour to prep. A simple wedge salad is always a good option to turn to. It's low in calories and you can load it up with whatever you want! We love having these staple ingredients in our house to turn to for an easy meal or snack!
