Eat Your Greens Salad - A St. Patrick's Day special that is healthy, tasty and free of artificial colors! #CleanEating #RealFood #March17

It’s salad time! St. Patrick’s Day is known for it’s celebrated green color. However, artificial coloring is in no way good for you. Not to worry! As we mentioned in Green Potato Pancakes, there are tons of healthy options that are very tasty and even more fun than food coloring. This salad is a prime example!

With kale, chard, parsley, Brussels sprouts and celery it’s no wonder that this salad is full of nutrition! Add quinoa and pecans to the mix and you have a very satisfying meal. Then add the Mustard Balsamic Dressing that made it’s debut in our Winter Pomegranate Salad and you are ready to go!
