As a mom who is constantly on the go, I know I need to have a few good options for lunch when I am running in and out of the house from soccer practice to meetings, so when I grocery shop, I know that good salad ingredients are important along with quinoa, maybe a rotisserie chicken, and whatever else is fast! This salad came from my friend Heidi who helps with meal planning and I have to tell ya, I am a huge fan. It is light and the quinoa is filling, but doesn’t leave me feeling like I need a nap right after!
