Savory and Sweet Summer Herb and Fruit Salad

Home >> Natural Vitality >> Calm Central >> Savory and Sweet Summer Herb and Fruit Salad
In partnership with Natural Vitality

Naturally sweet fruit goes great with tangy feta and balsamic vinegar used in this summertime salad. The addition of herbs was inspired by those of us at Natural Vitality tending our own herb gardens at home. If you can’t use up all your herbs while cooking and baking, you can always freeze some, dry some or give them away to friends. Perhaps you don’t have an herb garden. No worries; your local farmers’ market or natural grocery store should carry some fresh twigs of herbs. You can also see our post about making your own garden here.
