Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best ones. Don’t you think?
With this one, it simply couldn’t be easier. Only a 4 ingredient salad that shines with a Lemon Poppyseed Dressing, which pulls it all together into an amazingly flavorful salad. It’s a no guilt recipe!
I can’t think of one single time in my life when I thought “Wow, this recipe was so easy. I’m completely disappointed I didn’t spend more time making it.” 🙂
I know, right? Words never spoken in the whole history of the world ever!
What helps make this salad pop though, is the Lemon Poppyseed Dressing! Remember last week I told you I was leading you to something wonderful?
