Walnut Field Salad with Honey Mustard

Even though spring has disappeared again here in Germany, I have refused to accept this cold weather and cuddled up indoors with blankets and lots of tea. Additionally I decided to bring in some more summer feeling into my home with this walnut field salad with a delicious honey mustard dressing. I just think this might be my favorite salad! Just thinking of this salad, I can imagine myself sitting on the balcony, enjoying my mountain of salad while watching the sunset. What a perfect end to a day!

Simply by the colorful spectrum of this salad you know you are getting all the goodness you need. Vitamins in the tomatoes, leafy greens and cucumbers, protein in the beans, antioxidants and fiber in corn and lots of omega-3 in the walnuts. So what are you waiting for?
