Looking for a refreshing summer salad that is delicious just like it is or can be used to create Tacos, Buddha Bowls, and more.
I originally posted this video on the Plant Powered Payson FaceBook page and not on my blog. The feedback from the post in this recipe has been so amazing, that I decided to make a blog on it. It is such a simple but delicious combination and you can switch things up for your taste buds. Enjoy playing with this based recipe. PS. This is my first cooking video.
Here are just a few of the comments that I’ve heard.
Leslie, I made your Summer Salad again today and served it with soft corn tortillas, ground beef, taco seasoning and cherry peach salsa. My husband raved and wants more tomorrow night. 😊
This salad is so simple and so delicious. It is become a staple in my refrigerator that allows me to make a quick meal or just add it to the salad.
