Mike and I are getting the house in order to list it in the spring and have decided to freshen things up by painting throughout the house. We completed the guest room on Sunday and managed to do so without a paint fight. Props to us.
After days like that I feel like most people want a hearty, calorie replacing meal.
Give me something light and refreshing.
I don’t want to be bogged down in a heavy, rich dish.
Maybe it harks to mornings after the gym when all I want is a small smoothie or half a protein bar rather than a full breakfast. Subconsciously, I feel like I’d rather maintain the column of calories burned rather than lose them back to large meal.
It has its pluses and minuses.
This salad is what I crave after an afternoon of painting around the house; nothing too complicated, simple flavors, and quick to prepare. Lord knows my arms feel like jelly so I’m not standing and cooking in one spot for long.
On the flip side, this salad would also be divine as a side to a lovely grilled fish or a pasta dinner–if you were in that kind of mood and not covered in paint.
