This salad really is powerful! Packed full of greens and protein, what's not to love…..I added some additional veggies that I just love and even threw in some fresh strawberries and it was awesome. Sharp Lite50 cheddar tastes great too with less calories than our other favorite Seriously Sharp….great recipe!
