Eat Clean with These Easy & Delicious Salad Recipes

Summer is a great time to enjoy a crisp, cool salad (although, I eat salad all year long and you should too). 

These are some of my favorite salad recipes that I found on Pinterest. Now two of these recipes do contain cheese; if you’re dairy-free it’s easy to simply skip the cheese. I promise they’ll still taste amazing. And as always, I recommend using organic ingredients whenever possible!
