    This definitely looks like a healthy one especially if you top it up with the fruit. The fresh greens are already in season, but here in the Northwest, the fruit is not. But there’s always dried fruit or fresh fruit from Mexico. We like dried cherries on salads. Right now we’re enjoying champagne mangoes and organic watermelon, both from Mexico. Both can go well on a salad. Believe it or not, watermelon cubes are really good on an arugula salad– you can’t taste the bitterness of the arugula when there’s that sweet cube of watermelon mingled with it.
