Salad Week – Beet Edamame and Goat Cheese Salad

So the calendar says spring.

Though the thermometer doesn’t agree.

Looks like here in the Northeast we’re going to be going straight from winter…

To summer.

At least that’s what they’re telling me.

Time to get back in bathing suit shape.

So I hereby christen this…

SALAD WEEK

My boys love the salads!

This one comes together quick and easy.

Add some grilled chicken or shrimp for a more filling meal
