This delicious and healthy salad tastes just like my favorite salad at Panera Bread. The dressing recipe is adapted from All Recipes. The instructions are for a single serving, but it's easy to make more for the whole family.

  1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a pint-sized mason jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously until dressing is combined. Shake as needed before serving.
