This summer I've really been into prepared salads. I made them at the beginning of the week and keep them in the fridge so I have something easy for lunch that is a little better than a PBJ. I copied this salad from mt local favorite, Verrill Farm. I had it for lunch one day then immediately bought all of the supplies (there) to make it for myself.
