A New Year calls for resolutions, right? So, who doesn’t have one to eat healthily or incorporate more vegetables into their diet? I certainly do. And many moms out there know, it is our jobs to add it to our kids’ New Year’s resolutions as well, if it somehow slips their mind to add it to their lists (even on the bottom) and to their plates… Salad is a must on every dinner plate at my house, and it’s no dessert or treats until they finish their salad. So, crunch it up! 😊

Speaking of lists, this very colorful, light, crunchy, flavorful, and satisfying salad should also be on many kitchens’ salad lists to rotate at dinner. It’s a fresh idea and good tasting salad that works with many main dish and meat combinations. As we gear up for a fresh and new year, we must remember to fuel our bodies so that we may stay healthy, be productive, and not lose time. This is one of many nutritious and delicious ways to do so. Enjoy!
