Have you heard of RedBook Magazine? My salad picture and name made it into a real life, print, magazine, that makes me a bit excited and giddy. Go look, it’s in the May issue, on the ‘Inspiration Board’ section, right next to Adele! Ok, I think that’s kinda rad that my salad is next to Adele’s head.
One reason I love all the publicity my ‘salad in a jar‘ is getting is that it seems to be inspiring people to eat more salads. To get a few extra servings of vegetables into their daily diet. I know it’s inspiring you because you’ve e-mailed me to tell me, thank you! It always brightens my day to get those emails saying you’ll be eating a salad for lunch everyday at work because this idea inspired you. And that folks, THAT is what TRULY makes me happy. I’m a veggie pusher, through and through. I won’t appologize for it. I won’t be humble about it. It’s who I am and I’m proud of it.
I like to make a big batch of this salad on Sunday to eat leftovers all week at work. Of course I layer it in a jar with some sort of leafy green. It’s actually super good on marinated kale! The dressing recipe makes more than the quinoa salad needs, so just use the leftovers to marinate some kale. It’s a delicious dressing that’s great to use for any salad, really!
