The Best of Salads

1- The Best of Salads :: The Effortless Chic

And just like that, another weekend is upon us!  Baby girl’s crib is being delivered today which means that we are getting ever so close to be done with her nursery.  I walk in there probably a dozen times a day just to look around and imagine what it will be like when she’s here.  I’m so happy with the way it’s come together and can’t wait to share the final reveal with you guys!  In the meantime, I’m trying to stay (somewhat) active and eat (somewhat) healthy these last couple of weeks.  Ever since my sister gave me this cookbook for Christmas, I have been on a bit of a salad kick.  I have to admit, sometimes the amount of time consuming chopping, peeling, mincing , and mixing seems like overkill for a salad, but that first bite usually reminds me that it’s all worth it!  As we start to tiptoe towards spring, there’s nothing as fresh and inviting as a delicious salad for some al fresco dining.  Here are 10 recipes that are sure to be both delicious and nutritious!  Have a great weekend, friends!
