This barley mango salad is a hearty yet refreshing and spring-like meal.
I’m wishing winter away with this salad. Seriously, I’ve had enough. As if the 3 feet of piled up snow outside weren’t bad enough, I had to shovel that much off our front walkway just so our new couch could be delivered today because there’s no way it’d fit through the garage door, a feat probably worse than 90% of my CrossFit workouts.
I feel this way every February (hello, SAD), but there’s just all these feelings of anger, annoyance, frustration and depression rumbling deep down inside of me. Sometimes they boil to the surface and scream “GET ME THE EFF OUT OF THIS WEATHER!”
This has been one of those weeks. And since hopping on a flight or getting on a cruise to somewhere warm isn’t possible right now (although believe me, I’ve looked) I’m trying to combat it with food.
Spring-like sprouts, mango and the bright cilantro in this salad do a pretty damn good job of getting me out of my funk but seriously snow, you can stop now.
