Take a Walk On The Wild Side Salad

A BIG thank you to all who attended the workshop on April 21st.   And thank you for allowing me to post a picture!

We had a full day of discussion, learning, eating, and moving….   I enjoyed every minute of it.  Part of  lunch  was a salad meal; my favorite, made with organic chicken breasts, wild rice, and raw veggies and goat cheddar.  This salad goes on picnics, to pot lucks, and is a fast fully balanced meal when you are short on time.
