After weekends of sun and fun-filled BBQs and excessive feasting with friends, what I crave during the week is what people these days call “clean” eating.
I don’t know how that label came about (does this mean we’ve been dirty eating all this time? hmm, maybe I shouldn’t go there). But I do know that when I stay away from dairy and bread, and when I eat vegetables, legumes, and simple protein like shrimp, my body feels not so weighed down. Do you ever find that to be true for you?
This is a summer salad perfect for those midweek cravings for something light yet still filling. And it only takes 20 minutes to make, if that.
