Simple Summer Salad with Saladena

I’m always looking for new, delicious and SIMPLE salads. So when I came across these adorably packages Saladena cheese toppers, I got excited.

There’s a blue cheese (with cranberries, orange peels and pumpkin seeds) and a feta (with candied lemon peel, apricots and pumpkin seeds).  It is the perfect blend and a simple solution to my salad dilemma.

All I do with these babies is take some greens (your favorite will work great), top with the cheese toppers, and your favorite dressing.

Today I shook up a simple balsamic vinaigrette.

Balsamic Vinaigrette

1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon stoneground mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt-and-pepper to taste
Combine ingredients into a small lidded jar. Shake vigorously until well combined.

Keep this dressing in the refrigerator for up to two weeks
