Winter Greens, Dried Fruit Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

Winter Greens, Dried Fruit Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

This is an easy salad to make when there’s not much fresh fruit during the winter. You can always add sectioned oranges, peeled and sliced kiwi, or any fruit in season or available to you, if you’d like. But, I keep these salad and dressing ingredients in my pantry in the winter, so I know by picking up some romaine or butter lettuce, I can quickly put this salad together. Everyone is satisfied until the Spring fruits start coming in.
