Power Greens Salad Recipe

You may not know this about me, but I’m not a salad girl.  Like… at all.  It’s a rare occasion that I make salads at home or order them out.  Which shocks a lot of people since everyone for some reason assumes that all dietitians eat must be salad.  Well, not this dietitian!  But there is the rare occasion that I find a salad that I just LOVE.  And this was one of those occasions.
