Sweet and Sassy
Summer is the perfect time to mix sweet and juicy fruits with crisp greens! Mix a handful of cut strawberries with raw spinach—make sure both are thoroughly washed before prep. Add a handful of chopped pecans and feta cheese. Top it off with a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette and a hint of salt and pepper.
Create a party in a bowl by filling it with colorful chopped veggies to make edible confetti! Start with canned sweet corn. Throw in a chopped red onion and yellow, red, and green bell peppers (one each). Finish with a touch of rice vinegar and a hint of salt and pepper. Mix it altogether and enjoy the party.

This salad tastes as bold as it looks. To begin, rinse and cut grape tomatoes in halves. Toss in chopped basil and delicious feta cheese. Gently pour olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette. Top it all off with salt and pepper for taste. It’s as easy as that!
