Did you know that more than 90 percent of adults and children don’t eat the daily amount of fruits and vegetables recommended? By just adding one more fruit and/or vegetable to each of your meals, you can feel more energized and healthy. Do you plant a garden? Is your garden starting to produce a lot of fruits and veggies? This is always my favorite part of the year. I love being able to cook with the ingredients that I personally grew. They taste fresher and you have the satisfaction of knowing that you grew that! This Garden Vegetable Potato Salad is a great way to use your garden vegetables!
