  4. Assemble your green leafy salad, and evenly distribute the tangerine sections on top of the greens. Top the salad with the dressing.

RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a handy, quick dressing that welcomes raw ingredients such as allergy-fighting raw honey. When you eat dark leafy greens like kale, broccoli, spinach & more...you need a healthy fat to extract all the fat-soluble vitamins (such as Vitamin A) The chia seeds and yogurt are here to provide that for you. Dark greens can have a bitter element to the taste, so this dressing is purposefully a little sweet n' zesty to counter that. The fruit & honey pair up to take the punch out of those healthy greens.
