The weather has been a little warm here in Texas this week and I have been craving fresh salads with lots of fresh ingredients including anything and everything citrus! I made a lunch based on these cravings yesterday that will be on a weekly rotation in my house from here on out. It was one of those salads that was a happy accident that came from using ingredients I had in the fridge! I literally couldn’t stop saying “mmm” to myself while I was eating it (you know what I am talking about) and knew I had to share it with you all as soon as possible! My chili grapefruit salmon salad is not only super healthy, but is also full of fresh flavors that truly make the perfect lunch or light dinner any night of the week!
It's still raining. Yeah, we are on week two of dreary weather and this gal is overrr it. The backyard is muddy, I have to force myself to be productive, and the only thing that sounds good is a nap and foods that I shouldn't be eating. So in an effort to brighten up this Tuesday I made a colorful and healthy salad that will hopefully turn my rainy day blues around and will keep me full of energy all week long! My apricot, arugula, and quinoa salad with a cumin vinaigrette is just the salad to do the trick! It's gorgeous, full of flavor, and so good for you too!
Quinoa has been around for a while now, and if you aren't using it yet, today is the day to start. It's packed with protein, minerals, and vitamins and is definitely a grain that should be added into your diet! Perfect as a side, or mixed into a salad, I love it just about any way I can get it!
