Summer means Salads

Reading that got me excited about salads again and how easy they are to throw together.

Every weekend I stock my refrigerator with greens (romaine, spinach, cilantro, arugula)
and a variety of things to chop on top (tomatoes, avocado, celery, cucumber, carrots, peppers).

I'll also prepare a protein like some canned beans (kidney, black, garbanzo), a hard boiled egg, or quinoa.

It's been lunches mostly, and I've yet to tire of the fresh salad especially as the days get hotter.

The above salad was one my mom and I made from Power Foods: endive, avocado, and red grapefruit salad. And it was as delicious as you'd think.

What salads do you love to make? How often do you make your own salad?
