Recipe: Lemony parmesan salad

Personally, I am not much of a salad person, as I find that they can be a bit monotonous. However, with the hint of lemon and cheese, this one really does the trick! As a bonus, it’s really easy to make and has very little prep work involved. If you’re having a lazy cooking day, this is a quick and easy addition to any meal. I like to accompany this salad with steak or pasta, mainly because it makes me feel healthier when I’m stuffing my face with carbs. For lunch, it would be a nice addition to a buttered baguette or even more pasta. It’s perfect for summer because of its zest and lightness, yet I eat it in winter too because it can bring back the memories of sun and warmth. This salad is what I would call happy food because it really perks you up! If you want to thaw a frozen stomach, and have a tasty treat, try adding this to dinner or lunch.
