This salad mixes good-for-you greens with sharp onion, juicy strawberries, and crunchy almonds. The homemade dressing balances out the dish with a tangy-sweet flavor profile, thanks to balsamic vinegar and a hint of honey. It's an easy-to-make lunch that feels fresh, not boring. If you're meal-prepping, store the vinaigrette in a separate small container to keep the veggies from getting soggy. And don't be surprised when all your coworkers are jealous.
