  • Protein: Feel free to add some grilled chicken or steak!
  • Candied Walnuts: Candied walnuts (made with honey) are also a fun addition.
  • Avocado: If you have an avocado laying around feel free to dice that up and add it in too!
  • Dressing Options:  If you aren’t necessarily concerned with Whole30/paleo, I also love throwing some poppyseed dressing on this salad!
