Weekly Recipe Recommendation: Simple Side Salad

This week’s recipe comes as a recommendation from Coach Becca and from Feeding the Frasers. Salads are a great vessel for proteins. Most work with multiple types of proteins, one week chicken, the next bison and naturally on their own. From Becca’s recommendation she “excluded the maple syrup before to get a more lemon-y dressing”.
