Summer Salad

There is nothing better than a refreshing, healthy salad on a hot day.  I love a barbecue but sometimes, meat is too much for me and isn’t even that tasty!  This salad is perfect as a side or even as a whole meal!  This salad is so versatile and you can use any salad vegetables you have in the fridge.  This salad is super healthy and super filling, I hope you love it as much as I do!

1 Bag of Salad Leaves

Half quantity – Broccoli Rice

1/2 Cup – Quinoa (cook according to instructions on pack)
