I don’t know about you but I am a salad addict. Is that even possible? Well if it is, I am one. They are a fast, easy, and delicious way to eat your vegetables. Oh and did I mention they were delicious.
Salads…Delicious…are you crazy? It’s rabbit food! You might be tuning out right now…but hear me out. I am not talking about boring iceberg lettuce salads with some bottled white nondescript dressing on them. No. I am talking about beautiful, flavorful, zesty salads. Ones with delicious homemade dressings. Salads that are so full of color and flavor they are pleasing to both the eyes and the pallet! Am I getting too poetic for you? Sorry. I just can’t help myself sometimes… I am a total
food lover nerd.
