Sweet tooth? Still want to eat clean? I have the perfect salad for you. I never thought I would reach for a SALAD when I was craving something sweet. There are so many ways to spice up your greens so you can get through that salad bag you probably forgot about. This recipe is a very simple, sweet, savory salad.
There is no store bought dressing that compares to making it yourself! If you are using chia seeds rather than chia gel, soak the chia seeds in 2 tsp of water so it will create a gel.
