I crave salads. Especially after a vacation where there is always too much consumption, or after a few days of just not enough greens. Salad greens and fresh ingredients give me life, and I ALWAYS feel better if I have a nice big salad every day.

One thing I try to do each week is to clean some salad greens, chop up a bunch of veggies, and make a homemade salad dressing. Then I can add different cheese or nuts or other ingredients to make a salad interesting. It’s nice to try new things every week.
