Sweet Summer Salad

I love salads - especially as the temperatures start climbing here near the Windy City. With their versatility, nutrition, and limitless ways to experiment - salads are a go-to side dish year round, but never mroe so than in summer! Here's a sweet, sassy twist that is a definite crowd-pleaser!

1 large Romaine lettuce bunch
1 C. shredded carrot
1 1/2 C. sugar snap peas
1 can (10-13 oz.) mandarin oranges, drained
1/2 C. sliced almonds
1/2 C. coconut
Raspberry Vinagrette

Tear Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces. Add carrot and peas, toss. Top with mandarin oranges, sliced almonds, and coconut. Serve with Raspberry Vinagrette.
