Chicken and Cabbage Salad With Lime and Mint

IMG_1768

A good salad should have a ton of textures and flavors, and this one fits the bill. We’ve been making this salad for years, and it might have been the one to convince Josh that a salad could indeed be a satisfying meal. That was a big deal.

Huge.

Basically, this is the salad that started our meal plans on the journey to what they’ve become now.

Thank you, salad.
