K not to toot my own horn or anything, but I think I’ve perfectly packaged up the flavor of the holiday season into every bite of this delicious beauty of a salad. I’m talkin’ cinnamon. I’m talkin’ dried cranberries. I’m talkin’ persimmons. I’m talkin’ apples. And I’m also talkin’ healthy af with all the different nutrients each color of this salad brings to the party! Oh, and not to mention it’s dairy, gluten, and refined sugar free, vegan, and packed full of heart healthy omega 3’s. You really can’t go wrong with this bad boy. Enjoy and happy holidays!!
