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!!
