Hi all, I hope you are all enjoying your summer wherever you are. Germany and Austria where lovely and we had a fabulous time exploring the mountains and lake areas, I shall post some photos as soon as I have time to edit the images. Back home now and it has been a super busy time with so much going on and preparing the new photo studio for its new opening in September!!
In the meantime I thought I'd share with you this delicious summer salad recipe for all of you out there looking for something this weekend, it is very quick and easy.
