  1. I don’t usually put fruit into my salads but this looks yummy. We go through a pint of strawberries a day here and love goat cheese too.

  3. I love putting fruit in my salads! At a restaurant recently I had a blueberry pineapple salad with a yogurt vinaigrette dressing and it was amazing! I wish I had a garden but sadly I don’t. I prefer fresh berries but will buy frozen ones for smoothies.
