We’re only one week away from the start of summertime but in my mind it’s already begun. The long, sunny days make this mama want to escape the kitchen and enjoy every free moment outside in the fresh air!
Especially because I’ve been working overtime since we got back from our honeymoon. I’m majorly due for a break, specifically one that involves lying by the pool with a good book. You would think I got my fill of that while we were in Hawaii but the truth is that we spent too much time adventuring and not enough time relaxing. Woops. I have to keep reminding myself to just relax sometimes.
With that in mind, I’ve been in the mood for healthy salads that are filling and easy to throw together. The list below includes some of my favorite recipes as well as a few new ones that I found appealing.
I hope you find something that you like too and that you are able to fit in some time for yourself over the weekend!
