This is the time of year when everyone is trying to eat healthy and fill their diets with lots of greens and clean eating! I’ll admit, it’s reallllly hard for me. I have such a sweet tooth and being a stay-at-home mom and a working mom, the second nap time hits I jump into work and often don’t take the time to make something healthy for myself for lunch. So I’m trying something new.
My new thing is to make one big salad filled with fresh greens, protein and lots of goodies and keep it in the fridge all week. That way all I have to do is dish some up, pour my dressing on and I can eat while I work. We’ll see how this goes!
This week I made this delicious Pistachio Chicken Spinach Salad with a homemade Honey Balsamic Dressing.
The flavors work really well together. I love the sweetness of the fresh fruit paired with the salty pistachios is a great combo.
The dressing is a real complement to the citrus flavors in the salad.
- Spinach Salad Mix
