Simple Salad with Maple Dijon Dressing for Foodie Friday

Everyone enjoys a good Summer Salad, especially with a fantastic dressing!  I love this simple salad & this sweet & savory maple dijon dressing.  While maple syrup isn’t raw, it is a wholesome local product that adds so much flavor.  If you aren’t into it, just sub your favorite sweetener in like coconut nectar or raw agave.  This salad is sure to be a hit with the kids in your life too!
