I’ve got a fantastic 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.

Reaching your goals can be a lot easier (and more delicious!) than you think. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

Mediterranean Power Salad

(serves 1)

  • 2 tbsp dressing (see recipe below)
  • 3 cups baby spinach or other dark-green leafy vegetable, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2.5-ounce pouch water-packed tuna
  • ½ cup rinsed cannellini (white) beans
  • 1 carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped fine
  • 3-4 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 tbsp dressing (see recipe below)

For the dressing:

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (from ½ medium lemon)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard, (coarse or smooth)
  • ½ tsp maple syrup
  • Pink Himalayan salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

Make the dressing: Mix all the ingredients well in a small bowl, using a fork or whisk.

Assemble the salad: Toss the greens with the dressing in a bowl, then top with the tuna, beans, and other veggies. Toss lightly and enjoy!

This is also super delicious with salmon instead of tuna.

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