If you don’t love salads, you’re not doing it right! Have you even tried fruit on a salad?!

A satisfying salad should be loaded up with all the things. When it comes to salad ingredients, you can easily omit and add them based on your tastebuds. Below I’ve included a list of ingredients to give this salad lots of texture and flavor.

This salad goes really well with a lime poppy seed dressing.

Traditionally, poppy seed dressings are made with a ton of white sugar. But we’re swapping that out of honey and using other simple ingredients.

  • honey
  • fresh squeezed lime juice
  • light olive oil
  • dijon mustard
  • onion powder
  • poppy seeds
  • salt
