I love a good salad…especially one that has a lot of crunch in it! Mom tried this salad at her friend’s house…and when she told me about it, I just thought..oh ok…a salad..

The thing is, the sauce sounded a bit odd to me..a bit of honey a bit of mustard…I just couldn’t wrap my head around it!! But then she made it!! And I absolutely fell in love with it!



It has the right amount of seasoning..the mustard and honey give a burst of flavors in your mouth! And the best amount of crunch you can get out of a salad :)))
