Salads are fun don’t you think? I mean, think about it….you start with a base of greens (which you can vary anytime you want) and then you get to add anything you desire! I love it. Meat, no meat? Fruit or Veggies, or both!? Creamy dressing or Vinaigrette? Croutons, bacon bits, cheese??? I love playing with salad, and I think you will love this new salad just as much as we did!
