Jeannette Quiñones-Cantore Salads are great for any time of year, but it helps that they're quick and easy to make. We should always try to keep things exciting by using seasonal produce in our salads, this way our families will always enjoy what we've prepared. This time I've incorporated kiwi because it's in season and is always an economical choice all year round. It's also a very delicious fruit: sweet but also a little sour, making it a great addition to desserts and salads. MORE + LESS -
