These recipes were featured at the 2016 EMPRESS Women’s Retreat and were submitted by Chef Julia Dorn (Group 86). These two salads are inexpensive & easy to make and can add a super fresh element to help you break free from the typical Jamaican one-piece-of-lettuce-and-a-tomato-slice veggie side dish.
