It's Salad Month!
I’ve officially declared June “Salad Month”! With the gorgeous backyard patio weather we've been having, salads are an excellent dish to bring to that neighborhood BBQ or even have as a refreshing meal topped with your favorite protein!
Kale, strawberries and avocado are three of my most favorite foods, so this salad is like a little piece of heaven! Enjoy the delicious recipe below from Two Peas and their Pod.
