Every week we pull together some great Canadian recipes from Canadian food bloggers around the web featuring one main ingredient or dish. This week, we have 10 lightened up salads!
Regardless of New Years resolutions, after all the holiday indulgences it's nice to get back to some healthier fare. This month our Recipe Roundup theme was "Lighten Up". Today we share 10 salads that are not only beautiful to look at but also delicious, healthy and hearty enough to be a meal on their own!
