Let me introduce this delicious un-salad looking salad with a sweet honey lime vinaigrette.  It has colorfulness (is that a word?) and tastiness going for it.  Lately, I tend to order delicious salads out at restaurants but don’t really ever make them myself.  I want to change that.  All of the salads I have made at home in the past have been awesome (all two of them!) so I dared to try another.  So far, my favorite is the Chinese Chicken Salad  but this summertime chopped salad is right up there.

Look at me – eating salads…and actually enjoying them…..what is this world coming to?!

P.s. I think a little Cilantro Lime Rice would go great on the side!
