It’s the new year. Many of us are looking to eat a little healthier. So I’ve made it easy! This salad is packed full of vegetables and whole grains (by the way- NuLife pearled sorghum is GLUTEN FREE!) and topped with a zippy vinaigrette. It tastes great and will give you that boost of nutrition your body needs to power through the day!
