Summer is a time for lots of parties and barbecues. Now they sometimes get a bad rep but the fact is that keeping them healthy is totally doable! Cruciferous veggies have so many wonderful health benefits and adding them to the menu can really help with swimsuit season (we wrote a little more about some possible benefits here!).
This salad is very quick and light. The grapes add a refreshing twist to help the salad stand out from the rest. We look forward every year to making and devouring it!
Remember to keep your ingredients organic for optimum nutrition!
