We can almost visualize the soft light over the cityscape, smell the aroma of the fresh baguettes, and feel the beauty of getting lost in the winding streets. With all that the city has to offer, we are sure you’ve added Lyon to your bucket list for when it’s safe to travel again. For now, let the French flavors of Salad Lyonnaise engulf you in a warm hug.
