Blended flavors and unique textures make this chopped salad decadent. (Yeah, I said decadent.)
I’m a salad junkie.
And I especially like a great salad when it’s hot outside, so when I saw this recipe from Healthy Food Addiction on Instagram, I had to give it a try.
I made a big bowl of it on Mother’s Day and it was a HUGE hit!
(The Husband even finished it for breakfast this morning.)
Crisp cucumbers, pine nuts, soft feta cheese and a tangy dressing create contrasting textures and a rich flavor that make this chopped salad feel a little decadent.
Yeah, I said decadent.
It’s also light and refreshing and perfect on a warm, sunny day.
Just don’t forget the chardonnay.
