I’ve got a fantastic power lunch recipe for you today that’s fast and easy … and it’s loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients.

From the leafy greens to the colorful veggies to the delicious dressing, you’re going to want to add this into your regular rotation.

This is also super delicious with salmon instead of tuna.

Reaching your goals can be a lot easier (and more delicious!) than you think!

TIP: Try using the leftover dressing as a dipping sauce. SO GOOOOD!

Mediterranean Power Salad
