Spring is here and summer is a comin’; and this is the time of year where I streamline my diet in preparation for the scantily clad season. You see, all the heavy winter foods that we consume, although perfectly comforting and nourishing, find themselves out of season when the weather starts to warm up; and I find that I am eager to usher in lighter fare. I used to feel vain, by participating in this “slim down” ritual; but summer is when everything is on display- the less clothes the better and quite frankly, I think eating high density salads that fuel my body deliciously is a good thing- it could even be said that my salads brings all the boys to the yard.
Salads are my spring/summer food. Although some consider salad a starter and not an main feature, I beg to differ; salad, from green leaf to three bean salad, have the ability to be a complete meal, and because they are completely custom, they are exactly what you want them to be!
