Summer is nearing the end and I am holding on with all my might to every fleeting moment. Having outdoor dinner parties are one of my favorite summertime activities. There’s just something about being out in the fresh warm air, hearing the sounds of lawnmowers and kids bicycling all around the neighborhood. Not to mention the smell of the grill fired up. Am I right? It’s moments like those that make me cherish each summer day – because all too quickly they are gone. Then if you’re like me, it’s the winter months that seem to drag on and on forever. Snow boots, scarves and heavy jackets don’t make me happy (unless I’m on the mountain snowboarding, in which case I’ll make an exception).
Taylor Farms is one of those brands that we buy all. the. time. In fact, we buy the Costco-sized greens on a monthly basis during those grocery trips. You know the ones where the buy massive amounts of healthy food in giant sizes? Those are my fav trips! Because of Taylor Farms has readily accessible products and variety, there’s something for everyone in their product line: chopped salad kits, snack trays, organic salads, chef crafted salad and more! I specifically enjoyed this Chef Crafted Snappy Spinach Salad – it’s simple, wholesome and easy to ‘dress up’ with grilled lemon-citrus chicken and my healthy Low Calorie Dijon Dressing. The best part about the salads is that they are an easy, healthy alternative to your typically unhealthy fast food options. As you can see, they are beautiful enough to serve along side a delicious meal that the family AND your guests will enjoy!
