Strawberry, Turkey & Spinach Summer Salad Recipe

Summer is just around the corner! Many of us choose to host backyard gatherings with friends and family during the summer months; these backyard get-togethers allow us to come together over delicious food and refreshing cold beverages—all under the gorgeous summer sun.

Though BBQ may be the first thing that comes to mind when coming up with a menu for your next backyard celebration, how about choosing a lighter option that’s perfect for the season, a summer salad?
