🍓 Strawberry Cinnamon Salad

Is it me or is eating salad kinda the worst? I'm ALL ABOUT living a healthy life and incorporating vegetables into my meal plan, but for the life of me--I cannot eat a boring salad every day for lunch. 

🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓  🍓

Without being fussy or hard to prepare, this salad is a total "WOW!"

It's sweet, crunchy and the cinnamon gives it a gourmet twist!

It could be a great salad to bring to a party, or make up a big batch for a weekly lunch meal prep!
