I’ve been preparing and eating salads at home almost every day. I can have a salad as a light dinner, or snack during the day. Salads is classic and great way to calm down raging appetite instead of eating various high-calories snacks. This salad is all about summer: refreshing and light, bright and tasty. Perfect food for hot summer days!
