Truth be told, I used to hate eating salad. I didn't like the texture of lettuce (I have a thing with texture and food, high maintenance, I know) and I was very picky about the veggies and salad dressing that went into my salads. When I went to college, there was an amazing salad bar in the dining hall and I quickly began LOVING salads.
I really like having control over what goes into my salads. I enjoy a combination of greens, different veggies, cheese -and lots of it- I recently became a lover of goat cheese but you cannot go wrong with a nice sprinkle of cheddar, and won tons are my new go to for some crunch. I also love throwing some fruit into the mix as well. strawberries go really well with goat cheese and apples are good in any salad.
Here are the salads I especially loved this week.

My next favorite salad recipe of the week was from a fellow blogger, Melissa from My Soul Is The Sky. You can click the link and check the recipe out, it was absolutely to die for!
I didn't have any granola so I used my trusty won tons but it was still tasty!
