Maple Dijon Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by sharflan

The Maple Dijon dressing is the ticket here! (It’s also a perfect marinade for chicken or pork) Both refreshing and filling, this salad is just right. Great as an appetizer or as a meal on it’s own!

This was pretty good! There's only 2 of us, so I halved the recipe for the dressing but I probably should have fourthed it. We had about 1/2 cup left over. The dijon makes it a little spicy almost...but good. I didn't have red onions, so I used green onions, but I think I wouldn't do that again...the flavor of the onions didn't mix well with the dressing in my opinion.
