So now that you’ve read over Patricia’s super easy 80/20 rule… today’s Food Friday is going to be a fresh summer salad that you can serve up to your friends and fam on a hot day!! We have to get in some of this healthy food this week because for next week’s Food Friday is going to be for Dad’s Day! Until then, check out this dressing… something tasty & different! Have a great weekend! I’m going to be in Grande Prairie raising funds and awareness for Cordel.
