This week we are teaming up again with Amy Barrett from @chocdaisy. The recipe, a super summer salad that is fresh, green and full of goodness. Enjoy.

“Summer calls for meals that are easy to throw together, especially on those hot afternoons when you really don’t feel like being in the kitchen. My family and I love this light meal for its zesty flavours of kaffir lime, that oozes crunchy summery goodness’. – Amy.
