For me, there’s nothing quite like a tasty salad once the temperatures have started to rise. To be honest, I am even eating a grilled chicken salad that I whipped up myself for dinner as I type this out.

I mean, not only are a lot of salads nowadays super satisfying (take that naysayers), but they can also be really refreshing, which is perfect for this time of year. So if you’re one of those who’ve never seen the appeal of a salad, I highly suggest you trying one of the above.
