Spring Blackberry Salad
This week we're making a mixed green salad with onions, melon, blackberries and some crumbled feta cheese. The dressing is an easy pantry hack, one part of your favorite jarred pesto, and two parts of your favorite ranch. The basil element compliments the sweet fruits in the salad.
