Healthy Protein Salad

I made up this recipe on my birthday.  I had promised myself that I wouldn't cook that day. My husband and I had plans to go out for dinner in the evening. However, when lunch time came, I was so hungry that I had to make something. I decided to put together this very easy salad. It is packed with protein (20g per serving) so it made me feel full until dinner. Since all I did was opening cans, mashing avocados and mixing everything together, I could say that is was not really cooking? Anyways, I can honestly say that I did not expect it to taste as good. lol

I decided to share this salad recipe with you for days when you don't feel like “cooking” but still want a healthy and hearty meal.  Share your thought in the comment box below and rate this recipe when you have a few seconds. You can also follow me on Instagram (@vic_r.c) and on Facebook.
