Being a mom is challenging. Sometimes I don't know how we pull it all off. My hubby has literally been working 24/7 this spring, leaving me with with half the support and two kids who miss their daddy endlessly. I will never take my better half for granted after this stretch.
In light of my current predicament, simple -- and I mean really simple -- has been the name of the game for me at mealtime. I feel like I'm juggling more and more these days, so I try to pack as many healthy foods as I can into every meal. Since I usually keep cooked quinoa in the fridge and used my speedy mandolin slicer, I was able to whip up this nutritious salad in minutes.
With Mother's Day approaching this light spring salad is perfect for taking things down a notch for mom and celebrating simple meals that go from dinner to the lunch box with ease.
