Simple Honey Walnut Dressing
This salad dressing is quick to make and delicious when paired with a spinach and romaine lettuce salad with cherry tomatoes and sprinkled feta or goat cheese.
This recipe takes approximately 15 minutes to make, primarily due to the frying of the walnuts, but will stay in the fridge or counter for several weeks.
You can enjoy this recipe year round and try it with your favorite dinner salad.

Raw Honey Walnut Salad Dressing
This is a simple salad dressing recipe that is great with a dinner salad or spinach. I like to add feta cheese to the salads I pair this with as it adds a splash of rich flavors to the salad and raw honey dressing.
