Who does not arrive tired after work and has a huge laziness to prepare the dinner?
Lately, my husband and I became fans of the typical cold mayonnaise salads for dinner (but without mayonnaise and in a healthy version). We make them almost every day for dinner because they really are very, very fast to make.
These salads (and not the typical lettuce fresh salad) are the solution for those days when you get tired of work and all you want is to eat something very fast (and what better if at the same time is healthy).
And the best of all is that with this salad you only mess 1 container (where you stir all the ingredients), and the only dish and fork you use, and that's all! No pans to clean! Those who cook at night know that we don't like to wash a lot of pans and dirty dishes.
Oh! I almost forgot something important to tell you ... these salads are very "satisfying", and you no longer feel hungry after eating them, this is due to the high content of healthy fats contained in the salad. Good fats increase satiety.
