I found this in Epicurious originally, I have changed it over the years. It just gets better and better.
I have a friend that is a teacher tell me she makes this on sunday evening and uses it for lunch at work every day and has lost weight because she is not tempted by the junk just knowing what is in her lunch bag. I also use this as a complete meal just as is when I want something good and light yet filling. —Fran McGinty
