I am a huge Trader Joe’s fan! I try to do a monthly run and stock up on delicious and easy-to-cook meals like this one! For this recipe I used their Chicken Chili Lime Burgers, but if you want a vegetarian option grab a pack of meatless burgers and get ready to prep.
What In This Trader Joe’s Meal Prep Salad?
- Organic Spinach: as the base salad layer
- Chicken Chili Lime Burgers: which are super delish in this southwest-style salad. You can swap out any burger through, if you are vegan or vegetarian.
- Organic Sour Cream: because #yum and the fat cuts the spice from the salsa
- Salsa Especial: You can find this one in the refrigerated section at your Tray Jay’s… if you can’t find it, just swap it out with another salsa. This one is my fav though, as its muy picante!
This was one of my go-to dinners when I was just out of grad school. I loved coming home from a long day and cooking up something quick, easy, and delicious! And 4-ingredient meal prep… yes please! This meal comes together in about 20 minutes whether you make 1 or 4 salads! I love prepping these on the weekend, and enjoying during the week for lunch at work.
This also makes a delish summer dinner, a warm burger on top of a cool salad is a great meal to sit down to when its hot out.
The combination of the burger, salsa, and sour cream is great in this dish. The salsa and sour cream combine to make a spicy and tangy dressing for the spinach.
What Should I Serve with These Meal Prep Salads?
BEST Taco Tuesday Guacamole would be awesome on top!
If you are looking for a quick and delicious dinner or lunch with 4 ingredients to meal prep – look no further! This is definitely in my normal lunch rotation. Easy, healthy, quick to prep, and delish! At about $2.50 per meal, also super cost effective!
- This recipe is naturally gluten free!
- If you want a vegan or vegetarian version, just swap out the chicken burgers for your plant-based patty of choice! And use a dairy free sour cream.
