I often make this for dinner, but this also makes a great next-day lunch to prepare the night before (everyone out there who lacks food-prep time in the morning, hands up!!). To prevent your salad from getting soggy overnight, keep your tomatoes, cucumber, and dressing separate from the rest of the salad and you will have a delicious, healthy, and extremely nutritious lunch.
