I’m obsessed with salad!!

It’s not that I’m trying to be healthy when I eat a salad, they just taste SO GOOD to me!! I mean, we all know that most salads come with a very UN-healthy salad dressing, which is usually my favorite part, but I love to try out new salad recipes and especially love it when they have a house dressing to go with it. I do like my ranch and Caesar dressings, but I LOVE a custom dressing that especially made for a salad, just like today’s creation.

This recipe is inspired by the Strawberry Harvest Salad at Zupa’s. Have you ever been there? They’re fairly new to Arizona, but they are similar to a Panera or Paradise Bakery and have soups, salads and sandwiches. They have so great options to order, but my favorite salad is this one. I had it last time I was in Arizona and knew I had to attempt a copycat recipe. It’s just too good not to. I’m happy to report that this salad tastes just like theirs, and I’m so glad I can still enjoy it’s delicious-ness being two states away. 😀

Even if you have never had this salad at Zupa’s, it’s definitely a good one to try. It has so many wonderful flavors and is simple to make! Here’s the recipe…
