I’m always looking for a new, simple, and tasty lunch. I love a hearty salad, but I’m often looking for something with a kick to keep my engery high throughout the afternoon. Not only does this crunchy seed salad offer the benefits of protein, healthy fats, iron, vitamin C, and lycopene, it also packs a punch with spicy chipotle seasoning and zesty citrus. It’s quick and different, easy to take on-the-go, and even fun enough to serve for a shared lunch spread.
