Greetings health conscious campers! I know you are out there and if you are anything like me, I have a hunch that you always have your eyes out for new recipes that are healthy, tasty and of course, easy to make.
Well, today I have this salad recipe that I came across in my readings and thought for all you camping health nuts, this would be great campground cooking recipe to have on hand. As much as I love a good salad, I also have a bit of a sweet tooth. I was looking over my past campfire cooking posts and noticed a lot of very, very sweet dessert recipes. What about a healthy dessert or snack recipe that will satisfy your sweet tooth? The first thing to come to mind was trail mix! I love trail mix as it’s quick to make, tastes great and if you use the right ingredients, can be healthy too. So, read on as I share my Quick and Easy Camping Salad and Trail Mix recipes below.
