This recipe comes from my girlfriend, Meridith. She is such a great friend and her recipes are always wonderful.
I took this salad to a little get together at a park and didn’t notice that the dressing needed a good shake hence the separation. I love the color of it though. Doesn’t a dressing that has color like that just make you want to try it?
Let me know if you try it and what you think!
