Happy Friday!  Happy weekend!  Here’s to the freakin weekend.  Wow, I’m sure we can all agree that I’m excited for the weekend!  I LOVE this salad!  My husband and I both had this salad for dinner and both were full, so it’s a perfect well-balanced, protein-fueled meal.  I made double, so I can have leftover for lunches this weekend.  Yum!  Maybe that’s why I’m excited for the weekend.
