and cucumbers / oranges / edamame

Active: 25 Total: 25

Thanks to slow cooker adobo chicken leftover from Tuesday, this meal can be on the table in minutes. Feel free to customize these salads with other toppings, but we love the crunch of cashews and cucumbers and the natural sweetness of oranges.
