RECIPE: Summer Salad is a Healthy Option

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Features, Recipes

This recipe changes each time it is created, however, the basics are the same. Different flavors, vegetable textures, shapes and colors make this fantastic. It is often made without apple, but never without mint,  parsley and pine nuts!

Mint is the secret ingredient for salads as it's so flavorsome and infuses through the whole salad. A great salad with great textures. Love it.
