Happy Spring!

Can you believe it’s Spring, already?  

This delicious salad is perfect to make in a large batch. It will hold in the fridge for about a week without the dressing. Or, if you like to prep your meals for the week, you can also store the salad in individual containers and pack your dressing on the side. 

Today’s recipe is:
