Leafy Greens and Fruit Salad

Leafy greens plus fruit equals delicious salad!  Make your own dressing and there will be no worries about food allergies.  Plus, this salad would simply not do with a store bought dressing.  This dressing is a hit with everyone; even little ones.

So, next time you are thinking of making a leafy salad, go for the fruit!  You will not be disappointed.

I adapted this recipe from The Everything Food Allergy Cookbook by Linda Larsen.

Also shared at Real Food Wednesday  Wellness Weekend, and Healthy Vegan Friday and Slightly Indulgent Tuesday.

      Yes, Dijon mustard is different than standard yellow mustard. I use it a LOT! I have not heard of the documentary you mention. I will have to look into it if I get a free moment!
