Sometimes I want a sweeter salad and that was what I was in the mood for today as part of my lunch. This is my favorite sweet salad at the moment. When citrus is in season we eat lots of it. I am currently obsessed with clementines. They seem to go so well with date and walnuts. Here is the salad.

If you want a salad that is sweet and savory this is my current favorite salad with fruit. Clementine and date provide the sweetness. Date vinegar cuts the sweetness of the fruit. Walnuts provide the fat necessary to absorb the fat soluble vitamins.

Dan and I are going to run a few errands tonight when he gets home from work. He likes to go to the health food store so we tend to make that trip together. I doubt that we will be home early enough to post another recipe tonight. But I will be back tomorrow. I hope you all have a great evening.
