It was super hot last week and all I’ve been wanting to eat is fresh fruit and salad. To make salads filling enough to be a meal I like to add hard boiled eggs, cubed chicken, parmesan cheese, and avocado to greens and other veggies. Cucumbers, grated carrots, and different kinds of cheese also make great additions to what we did here, just use the recipe below as a starting point.
