As you know I often work from home. As during school year Gaba is at school and Mike is at work I often eat my lunches alone. There is the urge to have it fast and without any dirt in the kitchen, so I often have a banana or two, maybe a handful of nuts and loads of coffee. I don’t think that is the perfect way, so I try to make super fast meals that will fill me and will not turn my kitchen into a huge mess. This salad is an perfect example of fast lunch for one.
