We got some great looking lettuce in our box this week, so I am making a nice salad tonight with it. I have sort of been off salads for a while, but I really need to put that crunch back into my diet. I made a salad with the little cherry tomatoes we got last week, and added some sliced sweet peppers. I will top it with a homemade Ranch dressing and chew, chew, chew!
