High Protein Salad with Lemon Feta Dressing

Our family loves this for an easy weeknight dinner!  It is both fresh and filling. It’s an easy meal to prepare ahead and package up for on-the-go lunch.  It’s packed with nutrition and as I titled it, “high protein”, boasts a whopping 63 grams in your large dinner plate serving. Feel free to cut the portions in half for smaller lunches.  I love homemade salad dressings and this feta lemon one is a great option to use for a veggie dip as well. Check out the nutrition label for vitamins on this meal!
