Summer salads make the best use of seasonally fresh ingredients, and the possibilities are endless. Spinach is one of my favorite leafy greens when it comes to preparing a fresh and wholesome salad. Another go-to salad ingredient is cheese; especially feta cheese! This salad can be served as a side and paired with different kinds of meats and fishes. It's delicious alongside roasted chicken, grilled shrimp or loin. Try it this summer!
