The Sumo Citrus is a perfect sweet and fresh star of this salad. Apples and dried cranberries give this salad some additional pops of sweetness. The sweet and savory combination makes this one a winner! There is no shortage of textures, thanks to the crisp apple and toasted walnut, paired with creamy vegan feta.
The recipe is perfect for a family or friends gathering, or to enjoy at home as a simple weeknight salad that feels special. It makes a great side or even as an entrée salad by adding some chickpeas or cannellini beans. The balsamic vinaigrette is so simple to make and is easily doubled if you would like to have extra on hand.
