Summertime! And time for some fresh and light salads. This salad is so easy and tasty its something you and your family or friends will love.
Now this can be simply a side salad to a big meal or it can be a meal in itself! You can add some grilled chicken for a more well rounded dish if you prefer. When I make this for the family I like to cube up grilled chicken and toss it in. The boys enjoy it this way, so I aim to please.
I make a homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing that I think is delicious! And not only is it tasty it is quick and simple. You probably have all the ingredients on hand already.
Make this for dinner tonight or the next time you plan to entertain some friends. It is guaranteed to be a hit! Enjoy!
