Lunch Break! Summer Salad-Come and Get it!

I start craving salad when spring whips around, but there is nothing better than a cold crisp salad on a hot summer day!  I started looking around an was inspired by a salad I saw on Happy Health Life by Lunch Box Bunch.  Naturally, I had to make it, wouldn't you?
