Happy Friday! There’s something about this particular Friday that has me in high spirits today. I cannot wait to get out of work to go home and relax and begin my weekend.

So here is a quick, easy, and light salad recipe you can make for dinner tonight that will be sure to set the mood for the upcoming weekend.
