Citrus and Walnut Salad

Citrus and Walnut Salad

Bright and tangy, this salad is sure to give your day a little pick me up!

We love that classic sweet and salty combo! In this Citrus and Walnut Salad, grapefruits, orange juice, and honey add the sweetness, while walnuts and blue cheese add the saltiness. In addition to a serious flavor combination, this salad has a serious combination of nutrients. Grapefruits provide vitamin C and antioxidants, while walnuts are a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Apple cider vinegar is another great source of antioxidants. This superfood salad is delicious for any meal of the day–breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It will give you the flavor and nutrients your body needs.
