Get your greens Lemon Parmesan salad


Author Notes: This is my favorite go to salad- complete meal on it's own or great with a grilled piece of fish or chicken! I like that many of the components can be made ahead so a fresh batch is always "at the ready." You can also add other seasonal vegetables to the master recipe to shake it up. I have used summer tomatoes and cucumbers, shredded carrots, grated beets, fresh fennel, green beans or......you decide!Kimberly Lennert
