Hey there—Alyson here, Abel’s paddleboard co-pilot.
When it’s 100 degrees outside, it feels better to skip the stove and go for something simple and fresh.
Mint is in season right now, so if it’s growing in your garden, you likely have a ton of it.
If not, it’s cheap at the farmer’s market. So buy a bundle and what you don’t use making this creamy dairy-free Mint Chip Ice Cream, throw together with chicken and watermelon for a satisfying salad in minutes.
Mint is highly underrated.
Not only does it make your taste buds pop, mint aids in digestion, lightens your mood, soothes headaches, helps clear up acne and boosts weight-loss.Studies show that just the smell of fresh mint gives you a quick energy boost. Click To Tweet
The easy leftover grilled chicken and avocado add protein and healthy fat to fill you up and keep you in fat-burning mode.
Like Abel says, salads are the ultimate man food.
From our picnic table to yours, we hope enjoy this summer salad.
