Ok, fine, it's official. I am now a salad freak. I am seriously loving them! A bunch of fun ingredients, awesome flavors, and seriously fast to throw together. And little to no cooking at all. Yup. I'm definitely loving them. And the baby must be craving them, because all I want to eat all the time are big huge leafy salads with tons of ingredients on them.
I don't really know what to say about this salad other than "GAH! It's so delicious!" Someone should really give me a job as a food magazine editor because I am soo witty and descriptive. But really, this salad is great. Fresh, fast, and so flavorful. You'll love it!
