Author Notes

This salad is a perfect summertime salad when all you want is something cold, refreshing, citrusy, and mildly spicy (but that could just be me). You can make the dressing in advance so that when the time comes, all you would have to do is to assemble the salad!

Feel free to add proteins such as cooked quinoa, edamame beans, leftover tofu satay, etc.
Adding avocado cubes will add creaminess to this salad!

Store in the fridge, covered, up to a week. This will be a satisfying lunch for school, work, or a picnic! —Lauren Jun, MS, RD
