Hereford Beef Salad Recipes: Perfect for Summer

beef salad recipesThe warmer weather is gracing us with its presence already. It’s time to dash on the sunscreen and let the body absorb some precious Vitamin D. We can’t let this weather go to waste! One problem with the warmer weather is that it can reduce appetites, especially when the weather creeps up into the mid-twenties. With that in mind, we’re sharing three easy and delicious beef salad recipes that work perfectly with Hereford beef.
