Health Coach Leslie Smoot from Real Foods Market made some delicious salad in the GTU kitchen today. This is the perfect time of year for a picnic by the lake! Toss a few good things together for a hearty salad that is very satisfying. Then stop by Real Foods Market for a few drinks and goodies to round out the meal. It’s that simple!
