RECIPE BACKSTORY
Ok, so Wendy's Restaurants came out with a summer salad with fruit and chicken in the salad, served with raspberry vinaigrette and it was ok, not bad for a fast food salad, but I decided to make my own at home without the chicken and just fresh fruit! It was so good and refreshing! My family gave it 2 thumbs up! I made a strawberry lime vinaigrette to drizzle on the salad which took this salad to the top!
