Combining sweet and savory ingredients makes for an irresistible dish, especially in the case of this Apple-Feta salad. Perhaps what I truly love about this recipe is that it reminds me of summer and sunny days! With the weather warming up, this Apple-Feta salad may be just what you need to tide you over till Spring’s arrival. For a lower calorie option, you may leave out or lessen the bacon that the recipe calls for. If you’re feeling rather ambitious, this recipe includes instructions for making your own balsamic vinaigrette. Give it a try, and comment below to share how it turned out!
