Deliciously Sweet Salad with Maple, Nuts, Seeds, Blueberries, and Goat Cheese


My mom began making this sweet salad a few years ago and, as soon as I tried it, I just had to get the recipe. This is my version, but can be varied in many different ways because it's all about the dressing! So simple, yet so delicious that you are sure to get requests for the recipe whenever you make it. You can use pecans, almonds, or pine nuts in place of the walnuts.
