We love the flavor, color, and texture that strawberries bring to this salad, while grains and pistachios offer an irresistible blend of chewy and crunchy. Want to eat this strawberry pistachio salad for lunch all week? Keep the perishable ingredients (everything listed after the beans) separate, and build a fresh salad each day.

Recipe from vegan ultramarathoner Matt Frazier and health coach Stepfanie Romine’s new cookbook The No Meat Athlete Cookbook: Whole Food, Plant-Based Recipes to Fuel Your Workouts and the Rest of Your Life

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ small red onion, chopped or sliced
  • 2 cups cooked grains (such as barley), cooled
  • 2 cups strawberries, chopped
  • 1½ cups cooked cannellini beans, or 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5 to 6 ounces mixed baby greens (about 6 cups)
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup roasted, shelled pistachios, chopped
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • High-quality balsamic vinegar
