Italian Fresh Green Salad Recipe

I have really been working on trying to have more vegetables on the table at dinner and a salad is an easy way to squeeze in tons of vegetables in just one serving. I made this for dinner the other night and then topped it off with my husband’s Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (or any dressing would be just fine- I really liked Italian dressing on it too!).
