Honestly, this salad is so simple and so tasty. It made me remember why I love salad so much. It makes you feel nourished and connected to the earth, especially when you pick most of it from your own backyard.

Preparation

  1. Throw it all together, let it sit for a few minutes so the flavors develop and the leaves soften, then chomp!

Notes

You can really use whatever you have lying around to make the dressing (and salad too, for that matter). All you need is a sweet component, a creamy component, and a tangy component.
