This salad recipe is soooo tasty! You'll never want to eat out ever again!

There is no splurge ingredient since this salad has so many steps. But once you make this salad a few times it'll be easy for you. Promise!!!

  • 2 pink lady apples diced
  • 1/4 cup summer berries
  • 2 TBS goat cheese


  • 1 cup of candies walnuts
  • 2 oz of quality goat cheese

  • To properly dress a salad with this type of dressing put a little of the dressing in the bottom of the bowl.
  • Then add the goods and gently toss.
  • Finish off with the toppings

Candied Walnuts:

  • 1 cup walnuts
