Hello fellow food lovers!

Whether it’s watching dozens of recorded cooking shows into the wee hours of the night or constantly learning from the amazing culinary women in my life, my true passion and self-therapy comes from the tip of my spatula. I hope you enjoy my recipes and can find the confidence to put your own spin and twist on them! Stay up to date with my food-spiration (see what I did there) and lifestyle!

Whether you’re entertaining for a group of people or you’re in charge of bringing a side salad to someone’s dinner party, this one is fool proof and so yummy! This salad is all up to you; add more or less of the toppings to make it your own and how you like it best. I use a mason jar for making dressings, and it’s so handy. Add all the ingredients and just shake! Just put the dressing in the fridge to chill before serving. Bonus: all ingredients you can find at your local grocery store. Enjoy a healthy (ish) recipe on me!

Servings: 6
5-ounce container of mixed greens
½ cup dried cranberries
1 cup crumbled sea salt bagel chips
½ cup gorgonzola crumbles
1 large Granny Smith apple

Dressing:
1 tablespoon honey
¾ cup Greek yogurt
½ teaspoon lemon zest
½ cup olive oil
1 ½ tablespoons mayo
½ teaspoon ground mustard
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup white wine vinegar
Small pinch of salt

Instructions
Setting the Granny Smith apple aside, add all other salad ingredients to a large serving bowl. In a large mason jar, add all dressing ingredients, screw on lid and shake vigorously to emulsify the dressing. Place dressing in fridge to chill. When ready to serve the salad, cut thin slices of apple and toss in salad. Shake dressing again before tossing into the salad. Serve immediately.
