Spring/Summer Salad :-)

imageHowdy Folks! I dunno if its Spring or Summer, but all I know is It’s hot out here in the tropics!!….and this salad was extra refreshing when I made it yesterday. The ingredients were refrigerated – so it was cold and crunchy and all I can say is I was really thankful for every bite! 🙂

Lettuce, Apples, Yellow pepper, Green Pepper, Tomatoes, Onions And Grapes.

Salad dressing – Ranch + Lime Coriander  (in equal measure).

 

Enjoy! xoxox

You’ll find these ‘BBQ’s’ or ‘Braai stands’ on many street corners or near popular drinking spots for the enjoyment of the patrons. I will add however, that these were purchased on a ‘Street corner’ lol

Live a little you guys, kikiki!
