Summer Day Salad

Kelly, Dan and I had such an unexpected and wonderful lunch today that I needed to post it. It was a totally unplanned collaboration and perfect for Summer. Lunch consisted of a multi grain baguette with artichoke dip, a sweet Summer Salad and Iced Americanos sweetened and softened with chocolate almond milk. Kelly please correct me on the drink recipe if you see anything wrong, I’ll post it following this one.
