What’s better than having a salad full of fresh fruits and veggies on a hot summer day?  My mom has been making this salad and dressing recipe for my family for years and it is always a hit. It has a little bit of sweet and salty taste which brings a great flavor to the salad.  Oh and of course her dressing is so simple that when you see the recipe you are going to say that’s it?
