Friday Faves: New Recipe Favorites - Salads

If you follow Everyday Fabulous on Facebook, then you see how much I cook with my #DinnerTonight posts.  Since I cook for my family every night, I am always on the lookout for new recipes so we can keep things spicy (pun intended).  Over the last few months I have found several new recipe "keepers," and will share them here over the next few weeks.

Today, I want to share a few new salad recipe favorites that are tried and true in our house.
