Summer salads are what we live for during these hot busy months! Easy to throw together plus light and delicious, they make an appearance at every meal! Add some grilled chicken or steak for an added protein boost and dinner is served! The combination of berries and baby spinach here is perfect but it’s the vinaigrette that steals the show! Its sweet, tart and thick! It’s almost good enough to drink! Enjoy!
