Jude has been finding new ways to slip greens into my meals for the past year and half (basically since we found out I was pregnant last November) and this is a salad he goes back to a lot because I love it so much.
He cooked up some green lentils this morning and then dressed them with walnut oil, sherry vinegar, olive oil, and dijon mustard. He left them in a tupperware container for me with a bunch of greens (herbs mixed in is key to give the greens some depth), goat cheese, and a hard-boiled egg. I tossed it with my current favorite store-bought salad dressing (Brianna's Home Style Dijon Honey Mustard) and--voila!--a delicious lunch!
Sidenote: I have been cutting back on sweets and trying to pack in a lot of good food for Ruby lately. As part of a "fitness challenge" at work, I have now lost eight pounds in the past month. It's lunches like these that are helping me finally kick this baby weight!
