Microgreen Salad- Ultimate Reset Recipe-Happy Tasty Tuesday!

Before the Ultimate Reset, I've gotten pretty sick of salads.... Bored if you will!!! BUT this salad seriously put that ALL to an end! There are SO many amazing flavors! :) The pumpkin seeds (which I've never even put on a salad), are an amazing touch... and I had never had jicama before!  SO GOOD!!

I highly recommend adding this to your meal for this summer, and it's seriously HUGE!!! Cut down on the amount of greens you use if you find it's too big for you... but I love it! :)
