Strawberry Summer Salad

HAPPY (just-about) SUMMER! Welcome to one of our most favorite seasons of the year! Summer to us means laying by Mel’s pool, reading good books, getting tan, hanging outside late at night, and laughing with friends. Summer for us also/especially means delicious, fresh food! (But let’s be honest, we can make every season about food. Duh!) That’s why we were jazzed out of our minds to make a bright, beautiful, fresh summer salad to share with you guys! And can we just say — we knocked it out of the park with this one. It is soo yummy and totally guilt-free! Plus it just looks so dang pretty!
