Apple Walnut Salad with an Herbed Lemony Dressing⠀
Recipe Intro From feedfeed

This salad is filled with thinly sliced, crunchy veg, nuts and dressed up in a bright and citrusy vinaigrette! You can skip the feta to keep this vegan, or add some protein like grilled chicken to give this salad a little more umph! 

Give me a big + bold salad with lots of textures, flavors, and a punchy homemade vinaigrette and I am ONE HAPPY GIRL 😍⠀ -@nyssas_kitchen
