Salads make me happy.
And salads that follow the 21 day fix guide are even better. This recipe in the new FixAte cook book caught my eye, there was just one catch. It called for tarragon. I’m not the hugest fan of tarragon so I quickly went on the hunt for a substitute and was simply giddy when I found this tip from Fit Baby Steps to substitute basil. Nom Nom Nom. Basil is simply the best flavor for salads.
Tip: Throw a few basil leaves in your water for a refreshing sip.
