It’s no secret we are big fans of Cubby’s over here! If you’re local to Utah you can understand why! It’s the perfect marriage between burger joint and healthy salad shop which makes it ideal for date night! I am constantly craving their beet and goat cheese salad… its so good! If you go, try it with grilled chicken and thank me later. I found myself sneaking away to grab lunch solo just to get my fix in, so I decided to create my own version to enjoy at home! Even better I’m tossing it in mason jars so I can take it on the go!
I am a firm believer in meal prep and finding items of convenience to make living a healthier lifestyle more attainable. My mother always taught me to turn my fridge into a fast food restaurant. Having healthy options ready and available will ensure I am making healthier choices! Love Beets have been a staple in our meal prep routine for years. They are organic, come pre-cooked and ready to eat! Not to mention they taste amazing! I use them for snacking, in salads, smoothies, and even juices!
This salad is not only delicious, it is beyond simple. Most of the ingredients require very little preparation. I like to meal prep a big batch of grilled chicken on Sunday nights to use throughout the week. It makes lunchtime so much easier! I keep mine diced in a tupperware and ready to toss in whatever. You could also use quinoa or garbanzo beans in place of the chicken if you’d prefer!
I love food, but I love pretty food even more! This salad is gorgeous! You can easily prepare it as a meal rather than in mason jars too. Just double the recipe and you are ready to feed a crowd! Enjoy!
