Green It Up Salad for Lunch!


I just had to share my lunch today.
Of course it isn't pretty or plated with blog-quality finesse, but it was super duper nummy and I wanted to share the recipe.

In my flurry of Sunday food preparation, I made this little salad for Kevin and I's lunch today. It was quick, healthy and didn't need any salad dressing (at least mine didn't, not sure if Kevin dipped into the olive oil on HIS side of the campus).

Green It Up Salad!
Ingredients
2 cups of edamame beans
3 cups of fingerling potatoes
1 lemon
1 english cucumber
1 avocado
herbs to taste (I used herbs d'provence)
a sprinkle of mint

I roasted the potatoes, after cutting them into twos and threes and covering them in the herbs and lemon juice. I simply cut up the rest of the ingredients and threw the two tupperware containers in the fridge until this morning.

Totally yummy, totally balanced and totally easy! Homemade lunch on Monday. Whoot Whoot.
