Harvest Salad

Harvest SaladThis is a copycat of one of my favorite salads from Trader Joe’s.  Before my husband and I were married we would pick up this salad, sushi and sparkling wine from Trader Joe’s for a picnic in the park.  The last we had this salad was a year ago when we celebrated 5 years of dating with a picnic.  We played a board game, listened to music, and talked about our past and future over our picnic in the park.  We were giddy, happy and anxious for our wedding that was just a month and a half away.
