Sometimes you eat too much. It’s a fact of life.
Sometimes you eat too much for 246 days in a row. That’s sort of where we are.
And whenever we feel like big, lazy lumps, we usually don’t crave salad. But, everyone knows salad is healthy, and a good way to get nutrients without overeating. So, we keep challenging ourselves to come up with salads that don’t bore us – salads that actually sound appetizing when we’re thinking about the ingredients before we buy them – salads that actually manage to excite us.
This salad is just that kind of salad – the exciting kind. It’s sort of asian-inspired, with the tuna and the cilantro, so we made a sesame/soy vinaigrette. The plums added a bright, fruity flavor, and eating fresh spinach just makes you feel healthy and smart…not like a big, lazy lump.
Bottom line – we’ll return to this recipe next time we overindulge. Which will probably be soon…
