This is just bursting with fresh flavors that contrast but complement each other. I love salads with fruit, like this Blood Orange Salad and this Michigan Salad.

Maple Lime Yogurt Dressing is Simple to Make!

This dressing is sweet and bright. It needs only three ingredients to be delicious. It’s just vegan unsweetened unflavored yogurt, lime juice, and maple syrup. It’s important to use the unsweetened and unflavored yogurt otherwise it will have vanilla and other flavorings in it. For this dressing that’s perfect with fruity salads, just stir together all the ingredients and it’s done.

Vegan Summer Salad: A Mix of Sweet Fruit and Savory Ingredients

Mixing sweet and savory together is one of my favorite flavor combinations. In this salad, just a few capers and olives add great contrast to the sweet strawberries and blueberries.

Cucumbers are fruit! They go surprisingly well with other fruit. They’re mild and delicious.
