Yummy Summer Salad!

We picked up some strawberries at the farmers’ market today and they were not as good as the ones we found yesterday. Bummer.

Thinking quick, I chopped them up with a crunchy Japanese cucumber then doused them with my secret ingredient, Tajin. Discovered by my mom at Food 4 Less, Tajin is a blend of chili peppers, lemon juice, and salt that adds a spicy, zingy kick to fruits & vegetables.

I put the mixture in the freezer to chill while I chopped up a head of Romaine lettuce. I tossed everything together then drizzled it with some balsamic vinaigrette….. Delicious!!

Bottom line: A delicious and healthy way to make up for the cinnamon roll consumed for breakfast.
