Easy Japanese Chicken Salad

Today, I’m going to share with you and easy Japanese Chicken Salad.   This is one recipe,  I like to make it ahead so it’s ready for a lunch or quick dinner.  I’m all about trying to focus on easy yet healthy lunch or dinner options.   Right now, we are adjusting to the new summer schedules and I’m trying to make time to do those fun summer things like swimming, strawberry picking, festivals, and while trying to work- which can be very challenging!  

Last week, while I was loading up the car for work and Lilly was riding her bike for a quick 5 min she says – I really wish you didn’t have to work and you got a summer break?   Isn’t that the truth!?  While I worked that day I knew I need to save time on cooking dinners so after work we can do some fun things.  I’m hoping with some better weekly meal planning that we can take the time to enjoy Summer instead of it just being another routine.
