This salad is a great combo of raw veggies, protein and healthy fat so it nourishes you and fills you up while giving your body the nutrition it craves…and most importantly it’s yummy! It’s also super fast & easy to make.

Chopped carrots
Chopped celery
Chopped green onion
Chopped avocado (1/4 avocado per serving)

1/2 cup thawed frozen organic edamame OR baby Lima beans
