Summertime is here. Get ready for eight weeks of sun, swim and BBQs. I'm trying to stay fit this season and not fall victim to all the heavy pasta or potato salads that inevitably end up on every BBQ buffet table. Obviously my hands will find the chip and dip bowl. I have learned to accept that there will be foods for indulging whenever I am invited to a party this summer. To make myself feel less guilty for splurging on chips and potatoes and to celebrate the red, white and blue, I have created a clean and healthy Star Spangled Salad.
The sweetness of the fruit balances out the peppery arugula and creates its own party on your plate. And with quinoa added to this salad, you even get protein. The Star Spangled Salad is so fresh and healthy that I'm willing to bet you most of the partygoers will be taking the salad tongs to serve up seconds, maybe even thirds.
By the way, if you like what you see here and can spare a minute, head over to the Arizona Foothills Magazine's Battle of the Blogs 2014 and vote for This Chick Eats Clean! You can vote daily and often! (Nothing to sign up for or purchase.)
Happy Fourth of July.
XO, This Chick
