Lately Drew and I have been doing a ton of grilling. At our house, with family, with friends. It’s easily our favorite kind of food! But I also realized I wasn’t getting much greens/salad in, so I decided to grace the blog with this beautiful bowl of color.

This salad is the easiest thing to throw together, is so dang beautiful to look at, and is a great summer BBQ addition! YUMZ.
