Sometimes the best meals come from just cleaning out your fridge. That's how this salad was born. Feel free to make any substitutions you like with what you have on hand. It's simple, and super easy to prepare. 

I love making my own homemade salad dressings. Most store-bought brands are loaded with added sugar, sodium, and preservatives. Making my own at home is so simple, and I almost always have all the ingredients I need on hand. I could take the time to come up with my own recipes, but there are so many great recipes out there already, like this Honey Mustard recipe I used for this salad.
