We went to a BBQ at a friend’s house over the weekend, and he said to bring a side or dessert. I didn’t want to bring something that anyone else would be bringing, so I went for one of our favorite salad recipes. It sounds like a weird combination of ingredients, but it’s super addictive. It’s fresh and crunchy and sweet and cool, and is just the type of unexpected hit that I like making for parties like this.
