Salad season has begun. Yay for raw nutrients. Nay for bowls of tasteless, sad-looking leaves that leave you starving an hour later.

Enter this light but seriously yummy summer salad – perfect for lunch or to accompany grilled meat or fish for a lighter dinner. It’s also spot-on for for a meal with a gal-pal. Add a crisp glass of white wine for a perfect meal. Then all you need is some goss and plenty of chats!
