One of my favorite things about summer besides relaxing at the beach, is all the varieties of salads that can be made. It’s such a perfect way to enjoy all the delicious fruits & veggies that are in season! And makes for such a quick & healthy meal.
This salad was created with the intention of using up what was in my fridge. My goal while I am home for maternity leave is to not let anything go bad & use up everything that we have.
These flavors came together really well … And possbly made what I would consider a perfect summer salad!
