Scrounge Veggie Salad

Updated: May 26

This is one of my go to Scrounge meals, big bowl salads! These salads are a great way to utilize your produce that is about to go bad, and a great way to get lots of veggies into your diet. You really can't go wrong!

T h e S c r o u n g e

If you don't have these exact ingredients, Scrounge with the things you have at home and you may end up creating something even better!

  • If you don't have kale and arugula, just use one or use whatever lettuce you have at home

  • If you don't have cucumber, use carrots or do without

  • If you don't have sugar snap peas, do without

  • If you don't have sunflower seeds, use any nut you have at home

  • If you don't have Tessame Creamy Ranch dressing use olive oil and balsamic as your dressing or olive oil and lemon juice

  • If you don't have manchego cheese, use whatever cheese you have at home

  • SCROUNGE TIP: Whenever I get to the bottom of a bag of sweet potato chips it's always a bunch of crumbs, so I save them in a tupperware container and use them on my salad, they add the perfect amount of crunch and sweetness!
