July 22, 2019

Bursting with grilled summer veggies, this refreshing salad is the perfect accompaniment to any summer meal. It is delicious on its own as a side, or you can add grilled chicken or black beans to make this a main dish. To make it go even further, toss with chopped romaine and other fresh veggies you have on hand.
