I love a good salad but seem to fall into a rut when making them at home. I typically end up tossing the same ingredients together time after time so I was rather excited to be handed a new salad idea by the folks at Zespri and Athenos. 

 

I love Zespri™️ SunGold™️ Kiwis and I love Athenos Feta but have I ever thought of having them at the same time on a salad?!?!? The answer is no but I am open minded. I made this salad earlier today and I am hooked! You guys, the creamy, tangy feta with the refreshingly, sweet Sungold kiwi are an unexpected pairing of tastiness. Of course I’ll continue to make this salad for my household but I also see it as being a home run addition to a friend gathering or potluck. It’s simple to make but the ingredient combinations make it feel elevated and special. Did I mention it tastes amazing?!?! Trust me guys, it’s so good! 

 

All of these ingredients are easily found at Walmart!
