Summer Salad

I love to make this salad year round… it’s super easy and tasty too! I created this recipe after I had ran out of lettuce one day. Once I made this recipe I realize that lettuce is not the most important ingredient in a salad! This salad is light and refreshing and can be enjoyed year round!
