This salad is one of those recipes that really fills the hunger void, tastes like you spent time on it but actually requires very little time or effort. And it represents the new (or at least current) me. My almost 7-month-old is everything you could ask for in a baby, except for the fact that she is taking an extended sleeping hiatus.
She is fine with it, not grumpy or eye-rubby (unlike myself who looks like a (suntanned) 175-year-dead zombie these days). But no matter how sleepy she is going down, every time I put her into her crib to sleep, day or night, she opens her eyes, smiles so big her face looks like it’s going to turn inside out and then she does the horizontal running man. It’s so cute, it makes me laugh every time, even though I’m crying (and very possibly sleeping) inside.
