Fast Day Avocado Cucumber Tomato Salad tastes great with simple proteins of all kinds!

 

We may not have an “easy button,” like Staples, but here’s one of our recipes that fits the description for Fast Day meals-in-minutes and non-fasting days, too. Have dinner on the table in under 15 minutes by making a simple pan-seared or grilled protein such as chicken breasts, fish, shrimp, lean burger meat or lean steaks—even center-cut pork chops and this crisp, refreshing salad. Don’t fear the splash of extra virgin olive oil!

Fast Day Avocado Cucumber Tomato Salad works as great with soups, stews and casseroles as it does with lean protein. Don’t have time to cook protein—even scrambled eggs? Then use prepared Rotisserie Chicken from the grocery store and call it a Fast Day meal worth eating.
