DELICIOUS

Description

It's summertime in California and when it’s hot outside I cannot think of turning on the oven. We eat light and I like nothing more than a huge big salad.

This fruity version loaded with blueberries, cherries, strawberries, goat cheese, cucumbers and candied pecans is on the menu for dinner tonight.

It’s so delicious you must make it immediately. Off to take a dip in the pool.
