A Fresh Summer Salad...

A Fresh Summer Salad...

Posted by Rachel Parcell on

Happy Friday! I hope you all enjoyed your week and are looking forward to the weekend, I know I am! Today, I'm sharing a fresh summer salad, perfect for lunch or even dinner. I made this a few days ago for myself and my two younger sisters and all three of our plates were clean by the end of the meal, so fresh and healthy! If you have any questions about the recipe, be sure to ask in the comment section below.
