Summer Parsley Blue Cheese Salad

Summer time is here and that means the living should be easy, as the song goes. The cooking should be, too if you ask me and this Summer Parsley Blue Cheese Salad delivers. It’s full of flavor, easy to make (no cooking required, keeping you and your kitchen nice and cool) and works well with so many foods. It’s great for potlucks, too and it keeps well overnight.

how good is that
