Not all salads were created equal. It's true! Some salads are simply more yummy and filling than others!
Take this salad for instance, it's one of those salads that you consume and to your surprise, 25 minutes later, you're not starving and trying to eat your desk.
...Get caught nibbling on your desk at work once, and people will ignore you at the coffee machine! Trust me, it is not a good situation.
Do you want to lose your work friends? Of course you don't.
Do you want to eat a healthy lunch or dinner that will keep you full? Of course you do!
Do you want a promotion at work? Of course you do!*
Well then, make this salad, become full and satisfied, ooh and ahh over the delicious creation. Then you will make lots of friends, not feel overly full and bloated from eating junky food, and get a raise.*
**Promotions and raises are not guaranteed by this recipe**
