I eat a lot of salads! t’s actually a weekly thing for me. And to be honest, a lot of the ones made were based upon what I had in my garden at the time. Overall, I just try to keep it simple and quick.

In addition to simple and quick… I’ve adopted this whole idea of “eat a lighter lunch” and treat yourself to a bigger dinner type mentality. So salads have become a go to for me.
