There are some salads that you can eat over and over again, and this is one of those salads. Whether you want to fill up for lunch or dinner, this salad is an excellent option. It’s incredibly nutritious and filled with protein, healthy fats, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. After gobbling up a big bowl, you’ll feel full without the accompanying bloated feeling that nobody wants to experience.

This salad hits a variety of different, flavorful notes. Tangy bell peppers, crunchy cucumbers, creamy avocado (plus the creamy dressing), pungent onions, acidic tomatoes, and crisp romaine lettuce. What ties all of these ingredients together, you ask? Well, it all comes down to the addictive avocado-based dressing. With notes of robust cumin and tangy lime juice, you can’t imagine this salad without this dressing. It’s so good that you could drink it!

The great thing about this dressing is that you can always make it for other salads. Once you taste it, you’ll understand our obsession. Because the dressing contains healthy fats and fiber, it actually contributes to feelings of fullness. You’ll be less likely to snack between meals when you fill up on healthy fats and fiber. Plus, fiber is essential for optimizing gut health, which is a highly-discussed and valued topic in the current health world. Lastly, this salad contains an assortment of colorful vegetables, which means it’s rich in a diverse mix of antioxidants. These plant compounds are necessary for fighting free radicals in the body, helping to reduce oxidative stress, something that contributes to chronic inflammation and disease.
