I eat lots of salads in the summer. It’s too hot to do much cooking, and I don’t like heavy meals in the summertime. I’m also very busy, and like quick, easy meals.

So I love Suddenly Salad. I can make a light side salad to go along with a meal or as a hearty complete meal in and of itself. They have so many varieties to choose from, not to mention you can add your own ingredients to change it up.
