Simple Southwestern Salad
We’ve had a change to our schedule with our little guy Evan recently starting developmental preschool 3 mornings per week. My wonderful husband, who has a bit more flexibility with his schedule that I, now waits for Evan to finish morning preschool before going to work. As a result he now gets home well after dinner time on those particular nights. Now add in the beginning of Little League season for my 12 year old and it has become evident to me that our dinner time schedule will need to be a little more casual on many nights. Which means a lot more simple! It doesn’t make sense after all to prepare a big family meal on nights when everyone is eating on a different schedule!
This was the first week I really shopped to our new schedule buying things that are meant to be eaten cold or that can be prepared in small portions or even individually portioned. The idea of simple dinner salads and sandwiches that can be thrown together quickly was the approach I decided to take. Given that the weather is finally warming up in these parts it is not a bad time to start eating lighter! These items can also be made in advance and easily packed if we have to run straight out to the baseball field!
Today’s Easylunchboxes container includes:
- Southwestern salad: sliced medley of tomatoes, spinach, arugula, chicken, blackbeans and corn (a southwestern salad dressing will be included)
- Plums, kiwi and green grapes
- salt & pepper bagel chips
If you are an avocado fan be sure to include some in your salad. Although I don’t hate avocado, I don’t really love it either! It would have been just perfect here however with a slice of lime! This will be great for dinner and of course lunch!
