If you’re hosting Christmas this year🎄your menu will be planned to perfection. But as you look over the dishes you’ll be serving, you might find that everything looks a little…..HEAVY.🤢
🍗From the turkey to multiple rich dishes made with heavy cream to a dessert table. And even though we love to go all out on Christmas and it’s surely NO time to COUNT CALORIES🙌🏼 you may want a lighter refreshing alternative to break up all the decadence. And Because you have a lot to prepare your side salad recipes shouldn’t be difficult.
💁🏻‍♀️So in the next couple of days I’ll be sharing some easy and refreshing salads gathered from around the gram.
