Salads don’t have to be boring! I don’t know at what point we all started thinking that a salad couldn’t be a fun meal but this one will definitely change your mind on that. These greens get a welcomed update from crunchy walnuts, watermelon radishes and roasted asparagus and broccoli. The various textures definitely separate this from any ordinary salad and the colors alone make it a great one for lunch by yourself or for your guests at a dinner party. Enjoy!
