Roundup: Dinner Salads

I don’t need for the temperature to rise to love dinner salads. It’s my preference most nights. As summer finally arrives and local produce is at its best I can get the rest of my family make salads into meals, too. Over the years here at SPC we’ve made so many meal-worthy salads and here are a few of our favourites.
