Tri-Colore Salad

Tri-Colore Salad

Very simple, very colorful, very powerful. Simply add complex protein (I used an egg this time) and some cooked buckwheat. This salad makes you a comfortably filled without the typical stomach emptiness feeling after the classic just salad meal but does not bloat you up so much that sitting the next few hours in the office is a struggle. Easy, colorful and fast to prep.


  • A cup of baby spinach leaves or green salad you have on hand
  • Half a cup of buckwheat
  • One mozarella cheese. The size of your palm should be sufficient
  • One ripe tomato
  • 1-2 eggs.
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Prep Instructions

1. Wash all baby spinach leaves under cold water and dry it with a paper towel.

2. Cut mozzarella and tomato into slices

3. Start cooking you egg on a pan and cook you buckwheat in boiling water (on low-medium) for 15 minutes mixing from time to time.

4. Drain the buckwheat and set aside to cool down.

5. Place the spinach leaves on a plate, top it with slices of tomato and mozzarella and side it with an egg and a portion of buckwheat. You can sprinkle the spinach and slices of tomato and mozzarella with extra virgin olive oil.

Nutrition Facts & Tips

This is a quick salad with all you need to make you satisfied and nourished before the next office meeting. It is also relatively light and won’t make you sleepy at your desk. It does contain complete protein in the form of an egg and also will fuel your brain by the complex carbs in the cooked buckwheat.
