Summer is here,which means your cravings generally switch from warm, comforting plates of stick-to-your-ribs food to dishes that are crisp, refreshing, and dont make you feel like a slug for hours after you eat them.
The natural solution? A salad a day. The natural reaction of most people to the suggestion of a salad a day is one that goes over about as well as a toaster in a bathtub (do not try that at home).
But trust me on this one: Salads can taste amazing, they dont require much work, include fresh and accessible ingredients, and are generally inexpensive.
