The Simple Summer Salad We Can't Get Enough Of...

When schedules are tight and temperatures are high, the thought of cooking an elaborate meal in a warm kitchen is just not appealing to the Canvas Gals.  Lighter meals and simple, healthy eating is just our style in the summer and this salad inspired by a friend's recipe has evolved and become a staple. So, we thought we would pass it along to you too!
