The best part about salads is that you can add/subtract ingredients based on the dietary needs of those at your event. For me, you’ll notice that this salad doesn’t include dairy, but it would be great with the addition of crumbled blue cheese or fresh goat cheese (for non-pregnant friends). If you like, make it a heartier main course by adding grilled chicken.
