Hi friends, Alana here! My husband and I love throwing together salads when it’s warm out and we don’t feel like spending a ton of time cooking, or turning on the oven! We almost always have a cheese board and white wine on the side, sometimes we even start snacking on that while we chop veggies 🙂 The magical thing about salads is that you can’t mess them up- use anything you have on hand or whatever is freshest at your local farmers market!
