Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I realize that this salad might not be your go-to menu option on a day that is all about drinking copious amounts of green beer, but if you are feeling not quite yourself tomorrow, might I suggest this salad? I have been trying to add more fruits and veggies into my meals now that the days have been getting longer and the weather is slowly warming up, and this salad was the perfect way to do so. The maple balsamic dressing doesn’t hurt either.
