Parmesan salad

Tell me the truth… Has the increase in the price of groceries as of late been affecting your families as much as it has been affecting mine? Due to the rising costs of groceries, I find myself challenged with finding ways to still incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables into my family's diet, but at less of a cost. So, finding a way to use less ingredients in a recipe while keeping an amazing flavor that everyone can enjoy is my goal. This salad accomplished just that! It is only 5 ingredients, it is fresh and tasty, and is healthy. Most importantly its cost effective. You must give this one a try!
