It’s almost the 4th of July! Where did the time go!?
Halfway through the year…wow!
Our big blended family just returned from an AMAZING, weeklong trip to Disney Land!
Now I need a vacation…lol!
One of the BEST parts of summer for me is gathering with our loved ones and enjoying good food!
Outdoor BBQ’s, picnics, hikes and pool days just aren’t the same without Clean Eating snacks, big salads, and fresh dinner ideas!
What do you have planned for your July 4th?? We’ll likely turn on the grill and celebrate with good food and lots of laughs.
Here are 8 of our FAVORITE Chop-Chop Salad recipes to go PERFECTLY with whatever you have planned.
Enjoy the sun!
1. Fresh Lemony Shrimp + Avocado + Tomato Salad
This SUPER FRESH tasting chopped salad has a good balance of protein and healthy fats to keep us satisfied for hours!
Use mixed colors of cherry tomatoes if you can to give this a really beautiful touch!
Think about doubling or tripling this salad recipe for your upcoming parties or get-togethers.
2. This Clean Eating Greek Chickpea Salad is Fresh, Light and Tangy!
This is a weekend crowd pleaser!

4. Cucumber Avocado Salad with Fresh Herbs + Capers for Clean Eats!
This greens on greens combo is all about simplicity – but don’t let that fool you!
This salad serves as a super tasty, crunchy, tangy-fresh side salad,
5. Chopped Mixed Tomato + Crisp Cucumber Salad with Lemony Dill ????????????????
This type of salad is SO VERY interchangeable! So if you don’t love something, leave it out or replace it with something YOU do LOVE. Not a fan of dill?
Try parsley or cilantro. Get creative and enjoy the process 🙂
6. Greek Chickpea Salad + Tzatziki Dressing ????????
The crisp-tangy Greek flavors happening in THIS one, are EXCEPTIONAL alongside a juicy BBQ chicken breast, OR makes for a good meal all on its own – thanks to that protein boost in those little chickpeas!
7. Black Bean Quinoa Chopped Salad ????
This colorful salad is PERFECT for parties, tonights dinner, or even meal prep! I typically quadruple this recipe for our family of 8 (and always a few friends).
Haha…yes, that’s a lot, but I do recommend doubling it because it goes fast!
