When I say loaded, I truly mean it’s loaded with the goods, not only does this salad taste savory but it leaves you feeling full. This is my go-to salad when I’m craving a little bit of everything, specifically it includes avocado, tomato, onion, bell pepper and cucumber! This salad is also flexible meaning that if you want more or less of one veggie, feel free to adjust it yourself! I’ve never been a huge salad eater but I feel like the deeper into adulthood you get eating salads becomes more appealing to you, anyways I always felt like there wasn’t a perfect salad with everything I liked. This search for the perfectly created salad lead me to construct my own Loaded Romaine Salad, and I couldn’t be happier. Unlike other salads that still leave you hungry, this salad is rather filling, which is another reason why I love it so much. Try it and let me know what you think!
