A quick note on…


Although these salads are delicious without dressings, if you want to add more flavor try making your own homemade dressing. For a more cutting flavor, throw on some oil and vinegar. If you want something to match the flavors of your salad, try the jam based dressing belo


½ cup olive oil

¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette

2 tablespoons raspberry preserves

1 teaspoon black pepper

½ teaspoon salt


Depending on your flavors, mix the type of vinegar or preserves you use. Try cider, herb, or wine-based vinegars. Get creative with your favorite jams; try blackberry, peach, or mango.
