Lucy™ Glo salad recipe

METHOD 

    1. To make the dressing, combine all of the ingredients in a jar with a lid and mix well until combined.
    2. To assemble the salad, mix all of the salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl, add about 1/2 cup of the dressing and gently toss to combine. Add additional dressing as needed. Serve immediately. Leftover Lucy™ Glo salad can be stored in the refrigerator for a day or two.

NOTES:

    • * To cut the apple into matchsticks, slice the apple crosswise, stack a few slices on top of each other and cut into very thin strips. Cut around the hard core in the center.
