Just kidding. It was actually a leftovers salad for lunch today: the chicken, the quinoa, and (yes, somehow tinned-tasting and petrified) green beans from the cafeteria salad bar.  But since no one (how is it possible?) has yet raked me over the coals for yesterday’s Fried Chicken Salad, I figured a little more wise-assery would be tolerated.

The real challenge starts tomorrow, my day off and the beginning of a wild weekend away. There will be chicken wings and Giada’s crazy, creamy mascarpone penne – but I’ll find a way to slot the greens in somehow. I’m out of range tomorrow and Saturday, but I’ll be back here on Sunday with the whole truth.

In the meanwhile: your supper-salad ideas. Keep them coming.
