Kid Friendly Paleo Salad

So, recently I have been researching the “paleo” way of eating and the benefits it boasts for athletes as seen in my article Paleo 101. Throughout my search I have been looking for recipes that are “kid friendly” being that my two and five-year- old boys are not always an easy sell on new food. The following is a recipe I discovered from Paleo Kids/Paleo Recipes.  Believe it or not my kids are big fans.
