On the weekends lunch is a struggle. I usually get caught up in little house projects, checking items off my to-do list, or driving around town running errands. All of a sudden my stomach starts growling and I look down at my phone – it’s already past noon! Where did the time go?!
At this point I should have eaten an hour ago and Ian knows he is treading on dangerous territory since I’m likely to become #hangery. In situations like these time is not on our side. I don’t have half an hour to tediously work my way through a recipe, so we often resort to this delicious (and quick!) summer berry salad.
It’s simple and fresh. The perfect combination for lunch on a summer weekend. Since I never know when I will be in a pinch I keep my fridge stocked with produce from the farmers market, but if you are better at meal planning on the weekends make sure to add these items to your weekly shop!
