So my new favorite thing? Quinoa in green salads. I know I know, ten thousand years late to this party, but that kind of seems to be my thing – show up way late but when I bring it, I bring it.

Let’s call it fashionably late mmkay?

I’ve mentioned before (about thirty seven times is all) that salads are a   s t a p l e   in my house. As in, every single dinner I make has a side salad. My husband became a salad person very quickly, whether he wanted to or not, because I have salad issues.

If it’s not the main, it’s the side and if it’s the side, it’s gotta be simple because heaven knows I don’t have thirty extra minutes to devote to a side dish. I’m barely willing to put thirty minutes in for the main event! So this quinoa, mandarin, and strawberry chopped salad with feta cheese and pecans is exactly what my five-minute side dish routine is all about.
