5 Ways to Make a Summer Salad

I’m the first to admit that vegetables and I haven’t always been friendly. Gaining a taste for leafy greens is something I’m working on.  And you know what?  I think I’m going to get there.  I’ve already served up a couple of delicious new salads to my family!

3.  Nonstop Flavor
