101 Salads With Protein

Okay, maybe not 101, but well over 50 (and I’m still working on this list). I like salads with protein for lunch. To create a full-fat concept usually means either a rich dressing, cheeses, or a scoop of some sort of protein-mayonnaise goodness. Here are some of my favorite ideas.
