The internet has been all abuzz lately with stories about back to school – which of course includes school lunches.
Don’t worry – this post isn’t about school lunches!!
But the subject got me thinking about my own lunches – which are not always the most balanced. Sometimes I get so busy I forget to eat (I know, I know, HOW is that possible??) and sometimes I grab whatever is easiest – when I’m “on my game” that generally means some homemade hummus or a salad – when I’m not, well it’s generally a piece of cheese and a piece of fruit. So, I thought I’d come up with a new salad to add to the “rotation” and this Edamame Salad with Ginger Vinaigrette was the result. The calendar is getting busier and so having things in the fridge that I can just grab and eat is more important than ever!
Like just about everyone else, I am trying to work more and more vegetables into my diet and this Edamame Salad with Ginger Vinaigrette is chock full of them.
After I made it I ate it “as is” – but I also tried it tossed with greens and it was great that way too!
