The sun is out and for me the first thing that affects is my diet. Sunshine makes me crave fresh fruits and veggies. I know I should WANT to eat them all the time but it’s usually only in the summer that I really crave them.
Here is a collection of Summer Salads perfect to feed one or many more throughout the summer months. Click on the pictures to be taken to the recipes, or you can find most of these on the Recipe Page.
