what other salad toppings would be good on this?

I love this salad, because it is so versatile. You can make it as sweet or savory as you’d like.

I love my salads loaded with all the good stuff. I like my salad with all the things on it, because it gives it more flavor and variety.

Here are a few of my favorite salad additions and recommendations:

-Blue Cheese: I know this recipe calls for Feta, but blue cheese would taste just as delicious, if not more. The more bitter cheeses taste better with salad. Parmesan cheese would also be a great cheese for this.

-Pecans: I love the almonds on this salad, but really any nut would be delicious with it.

-Celery: This is a simple vegetable to sneak into this salad, because it doesn’t have a lot of taste, and pairs nicely with fruit. You will love the extra crunch as well.

-Cucumbers: They add a similar texture and flavor as well as celery. They add that crunch the salad needs, as well as sneaks in a few more greens, to your diet.

-Raspberries: I am the biggest raspberry fan. This salad would really be good with any berry, but since the dressing is raspberry vinaigrette, they would taste delicious with this salad.

-Mangoes: If you have never tried mangoes on a salad, you need to right away. They add the perfect amount of sweetness, and flavor to any salad. You will love it.

-Tuna: If you need a chicken replacement, I have also tried this salad with tuna and it was out of this world, delicious. It was easy to make and full of flavor.

-Bacon Bits: Bacon Bits add the perfect amount of salty, savory, goodness. You will love it. It also adds a little more protein to your salad.
