This salad is great for a dinner party, or for Mother’s Day – it’s not just delicious it’s also pretty to look at. I would make extra dressing if I was making this for guests. You can make the cheese ahead and assemble when ready to serve. Other fruity brunch ideas I love are Fruit Pizza, Blueberry Banana Bread, and Strawberries Romanoff.
