Late winter fare...

As much as I love the warmth and comfort imparted by soups and casseroles when it's cold out, as winter drags on I start craving fresh salad.  Tonight I made Thai Quinoa Salad.  It was quite good, but I will double the dressing recipe next time so that there will be extra for individuals to add more if desired.

While the salad has protein with the quinoa, edamame, and peanuts, I thought my men would prefer a little more, so I served an oven-baked salmon filet alongside. 

Tomorrow we will have beef and vegetable soup with cornbread...I'm not ready to leave winter meals behind just yet.

  1. Beef and vegetable soup sounds delicious! I really have to force myself to eat a salad so I'm glad Phil gave us six more weeks of eating roasted vegetables!

  2. Our holiday in NZ has been very protein heavy so I've earmarked your recipe for when we get home.

    1. I had some of the leftover salad for lunch, and it held up quite well. It's a very crunchy salad...more of a slaw? Hope you like!
