Notes

Use fresh ingredients and buy local when possible. Grab some greens from your local farmer’s market this Saturday. Check and see if any farms in your area offer a CSA so you can get fresh veggies delivered right to your door. Stop by the strawberry stand on the corner and pick up a bucket. Fresh ingredients = more flavor. AND, buying local means you’re supporting your community and the hard working farmers that live there!

Feel free to add crispy crumbled bacon or grilled chicken to bulk up this salad. My husband would tell you that bacon makes everything better and I’ll admit I often agree. In this case I think the flavors and textures are strong enough on their own without the addition of meat, but you do what feels right for you!
