While adding fruit on salad can seem weird at first, it truly is such a delicious combination.
Lots of summertime fruits are tasty on salads, but this one focuses on using seasonal cherries and blueberries. On top of fresh baby greens and paired with creamy goat cheese (omit this if you’re sticking to strict Paleo), the fruit is really the star of this recipe.
The salad dressing for this salad is delicious as well. Many people buy salad dressings at home, but a lot of brands have sketchy ingredients. You have to read the ingredient labels closely to avoid this.
Skip the hassle and make your own at home. This dressing can be doubled or tripled and saved for later. Not only is it cheaper to make your own, but you also control the quality of ingredients that goes into it. It’s truly a win-win.
This salad can be eaten as a side or paired with chicken or fish for a complete meal.
