The Busy Salad

Quick and easy recipes

I’m.always.busy. Sometimes I feel like I never get a moment to myself to breathe. On weekdays not many people have time to run home & quickly cook up a healthy, filling lunch. My friend, Mike, created ‘the busy salad‘ for when I’m too busy & need some “fast” food with the proper nutrients. It’s delish {!!!} & ridiculously easy to make.

Quick skinny tip: Keep grapes in a bowl, out in the kitchen. They’re perfect for grabbing when you’re darting out the door. And that ‘hand to mouth’ idea keeps you occupied & satisfied.

The Busy Salad 

** Serves two hungry people


Half a head each of romaine lettuce & radicchio lettuce

1 chopped ‘light’ string cheese

7 chopped cherry tomatoes

1/2 diced zucchini

1/2 sliced avocado

Black pepper

Canned tuna fish [ Albacore white tuna in water is my pref ]

[ Dressing: squeeze half a lemon, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, splash of red wine vinegar ]



  1. This salad looks so tasty and easy to throw together. I’m always looking for new things to toss in a salad and I love the tuna idea. Easy cupboard staple ingredient. Also, I always have grapes around to munch on! Tasty.
