Summer time is finally here and with it pool time, fun outdoor time too.

Lighter dinners are welcome if not a must. Here is a great new salad that we cannot stay away, Kale Salad with Honey Lemon Vinaigrette.

I was first tintroduce to it by a dear friend and replicate it over and over until we had it as we like it.
