It’s the height of summer and you know what that means…BARBEQUE SEASON! It’s only the beginning of July and I’ve already been invited to 4 potluck backyard barbeques. I was stressing about what to bring until I realized I had the ultimate summer salad recipe duo. This recipe duo is perfect because it handles both sweet and savory.
