As the weather warms, strawberry season starts to flourish and farmer’s markets around the country begin to open, it as if our bodies know and they start firing off signals to our brains--give me freshly-picked fruits and veggies!
Our taste buds begin to change and start to crave fresher ingredients.
So here’s a refreshing, yet filling salad that is actually my husband’s creation! Enjoy!
This salad’s great:
- As a last-minute, quick meal when having guests.
- In the winter, as a refreshing option after all the holiday meals.
- As a side salad. Use it alongside AIP Shrimp Sauté with Lemon Thyme & Leeks or Semi-Homemade Spaghetti (Squash) & “Meat”balls. Both are Gluten-Free & ready in under 20 mins!
