    Fresh summer salad with lemon dressing -easy, healthy and delicious!

    This summer salad is a lightened version of my nuts about berries salad. I’ve removed the sugared almonds and dressing to make a lighter version for summer. It’s also another whole 30 recipe! Berry and nut salads are my absolute favorite. I could eat them every single day (and practically do). Add some grilled chicken to make it a meal, or serve it as a side dish at a BBQ.

      This looks really nice and I will have to make some for myself over the summer.

      One question tho “4 TB fresh lemon juice” does it mean “4 tablespoons”? (I’m not good with abbreviations for recipes haha
