Fast & Easy Dinner: Bistro Dinner Salad


Today is the first official day of summer and the perfect time to enjoy a big, green salad for dinner. Hearty and filling, salads are an excellent way to eat your daily vegetables and stay cool on a hot day as no oven/stove is necessary. Crisp greens, tangy homemade vinaigrette, and a poached egg (zapped in the microwave to make things easy on you) combine for a delicious and healthy meal. Pair with a chilled glass of white wine to ring in the sunny season: cheers to summer! This recipe is too good to pass up so bookmark it now and
