Hi Everyone!
 
Hard to believe it is already August…yikes!!  Well I don’t know about you but I am trying to beat this California heat and I am always looking for a reason to be outside and keep dinner simple and light.  One of my favorite salads is yummy and is perfect for entertaining or just a quick and easy weekday meal. Feel free to add or take ingredients out….get creative people!!  I hope you enjoy the last of summer and take it easy!
