We had a nice little get away a few weeks ago and headed down to Lake Mead with a group of friends. It was a much needed get away. But when stuck on a beach for hours on end (I'm not complaining) you better go prepared with coolers of food. I started looking for foods that would be filling and easily stored and came across this beautiful salad. It's fresh, filling and is perfect for picnic or beach settings. So to sum it up...its perfect for SUMMER!
