Magnificent Multi Veggie Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Okay, you get it. Jon and I love to eat… and we eat well, in my humble opinion. The down side to all of the yummy food is an increasingly expanding mid section. Sigh. After a brief oh-my-gosh moment upon stepping on the scale earlier this week, I had a minor meltdown and issued this decree: We must focus more on making healthy choices. I wasn’t sure if it registered with Jon, but when I arrived home last night, he had prepared aย magnificentย salad for dinner. If he keeps this up, we will be back to our fighting weights in no time.

  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
