This summer I’ve been really loving on salads. Our garden has been producing a bumper crop of greens with all the rain we’ve had, and I’ve been on a health kick, so I’ve been loving lunches of giant salads during my week days. Because of all the salads, I’ve been going through a TON of salad dressing. (Dressing is really the point of the salad right?) So, I thought it would be fun to put together a round up of a ton of different DIY salad dressing options today!

Meal Plan Monday 5/25-5/31:
This meal plan is designed to feed approximately 4 adults at each meal or two adults with lunches left over. Feel free to double or add to it as needed. **You’ll need to open it with the free Adobe Reader App (Android or iOS) to be able to use the check boxes on mobile, so install that first if you don’t have it already.**

Tuesday: White Enchilada Casserole from Gimme Some Oven (gluten-free if using gf tortillas and gf flour, vegetarian option)
Wednesday: Spicy Thai Peanut Chicken Wraps from The Chunky Chef (gluten-free if you use gf sauces & tortillas, vegetarian option) – she used pre-made name-brand ingredients, but the concept is easily re-produced with other similar ingredients or you can cook your own chicken.
