I originally threw this sweet and salty antioxidant salad together with ingredients I happened to have on hand. But, it ended up being so delicious, that I’ve kept making it and had to share the recipe with you.
This salad makes a great side dish and is a delicious way to get in your dark leafy greens. Pair it with a protein of choice, such as this simple Lemon Pepper Salmon or my favorite 5-Spice Salmon to make it a complete meal.
