Easy Weeknight BBQ Veggie Salad

   Easy Weeknight BBQ Veggie Salad

School is almost back in session and I’m looking for all the easy weeknight recipes that don’t require a ton of prep work. This Easy Weeknight BBQ Veggie Salad is so simple to prepare and will leave everyone full and satisfied. I came up with the recipe while I was roaming around Sprouts one day, and knew I had to share it with you guys! And if you’re worried your kids might be a little iffy about salad, just serve the toppings in individual cups and let them choose what they want to put on their plates!

My first exposure to jackfruit was on the Plant-based Getaway trip hosted by Sprouts Farmers Market that I got to go on back in June. I love the flavor, and while cooking it wasn’t terribly difficult, I LOVE that Sprouts also has some quick time-saving jackfruit options available (in addition to the whole 20lb fruit!), like the ready-to-eat BBQ jackfruit I use in this salad.

The recipe was sponsored by Sprouts Farmer’s Market. All ideas and thoughts are my own.
