School starts for the little ones today. Initially I was super excited but now I’m kind of sadsies. I felt this summer go by so fast. Did you? In an effort to hold on to summer a little longer, were going hard on salads this week. Bright, fresh and simple. They have to be simple! I love putting dinner together and throwing a super simple salad to balance things out. Every time I buy carrots I never use the whole bag so guess what I had leftover carrots from another recipe and decided to put it together. I love pistachios so I added those for additional crunch. I love orange and carrot together so an orange vinaigrette seemed to be in order. I added mint for an extra herbacious freshness and Aleppo pepper for some zest. Kept it simple and delicious.
I like to keep a mental list of super easy salads to throw together. If your pressed for time or have a few ingredients, simple salads are great to keep it simple and healthy!
