The weather is warming up and a hot kitchen is the last place anyone wants to be. We still gotta eat, tho.
Skip the stove, overlook the oven, and join Forty Acres Fresh Market founder and owner, Liz, in making a salad like you haven't seen. Leave the leaves and opt for a colorful blend of crunchy veggies tossed in a homemade dressing. This chef's k.i.s.s. (keep it simple silly!) recipe comes courtesy of our friends at Katr2U Catering Company.
