I love, viagra usa health love, ask love a good summer salad. If I could eat salad for dinner every night ALL year round – with the occasional Mexican inspired feast thrown in; I’d be a happy camper (camping because, remedy summer). So who’s stopping me from doing just that? No one. But don’t you feel like your usual go to salad can become a bit, well, usual? Since that’s the case for me, I’ve decided that a fun way to change it up is with a new dressing. Also adding some fruit can really make your meal scream out SUMMER & YUM! Let’s do this.
