Preparation

Step 1

Add all of the dressing ingredients to a medium bowl and whisk to combine or shake in a mason jar. Refrigerate while you prepare the salad ingredients then whisk/shake again before drizzling over salad. The dressing can be made up to a week in advance.

When ready to serve, toss all of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl. You can either drizzle with desired amount of dressing and toss to combine or if you expect leftovers, drizzle individual salad servings with dressing.

NOTES
All ingredients are a guideline. Add more or less of your favorite salad fixings!
*The caramelized nuts recipe makes 1 cup nuts. I suggest making 1 cup caramelized walnuts and using the desired amount in the salad and eating/storing the rest :)
