May is National Salad Month and we absolutely love that! A simple salad is a perfect easy side to fill half your plate at lunch or dinner, and a hearty salad with a protein can serve as a complete meal. Any combination of fresh or cooked fruits and veggies and your favourite dressing is a great way to enjoy a meal – and oh so healthy!
