Salad de Colores | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Summertime usually means lots of salads. I know that on a hot summer night, I don’t always even feel like eating, but a big, refreshing salad hits the spot. And this salad is not only beautiful and full of color, but it fills you up without feeling heavy. And it’s a great way to get in all your veggies!!

    Agreed. Salads are great when I'm too pooped to chew, much less cook.

    Re: Your comment. I hate when people leave nasty comments. So rude. She obviously didn't read my entire post. Ugh.

    I agree, in the summer I often have a salad rather than anything heavier. It just hits the spot.

    I enjoy salads as the main course, and summertime is the perfect time for it. I thought about you yesterday. I read that there are some grasshopper woes in Utah … now I know Utah is a huge state and the problem could be hundreds of miles from you … but still. Hope the hopping buggers stay far from you!
