It’s summer time, which means lots of quick and easy summer salads! If you’re like me, you probably don’t like to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so it’s important to find some go to meals especially for lunches that are quick and easy. This is very much a DTS (drive thru Sue’s) dream meal. If you have a Costco membership, you can get most everything you need there. Just pick up some spinach, Whisps, bacon pieces, pre-grilled chicken strips and any veggies you like. I love cucumbers, mini sweet bell peppers, snap peas, and a few carrots in mine. Then swing by Walmart and get your Primal kitchen ranch or italian dressing. All you have to do is a little dicing and you can have a  yummy, filling, healthy lunch within minutes. I love the flavors of this salad and the crunch of the parmesan crisps on top. Who needs unhealthy croutons anyways? What are your favorite go-to summer salads?
