Sweet and Savory Pita Salad


 Salads are the easiest meal for weeknight dinners, but I feel that I am constantly making some combination of grilled chicken + vegetables in my fridge + balsamic dressing.

It's fun to mix it up sometimes.  This salad is a perfect way to give some spunk back into your salad.  

One of my best friends, Allison, is getting married this weekend!  Congratulations Allison and Chris!  I am soo excited for you two!

Thought I'd add some of my favorite pics of Allison and I:)




Okay back to the food now, lol.




Sweet and Savory Salad
Serves 1

Mixings:
Honey Goat Cheese (a must in my fridge - best combo ever)
Walnuts toasted with some olive oil, salt, and pepper, over medium heat until golden brown
Dates chopped into bite size pieces
1/2 Green Apple chopped into bite size pieces
1/4 Red Onion sliced and sauteed in olive oil, salt, and pepper
Pita brushed with olive oil, salt, and pepper and toasted
 Herb Salad Mix

Dressing:
1 tsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp Honey
Juice from Lemon Juice
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
Salt
Pepper

Whisk your dressing ingredients.  Toss the dressing and all the mixings together; well except for the pita of course.  Then top your toasted pita with your salad and serve.  

Have a great weekend!
