Creamy Citrus Dressing + Seared Pineapple Salad – a sweet and delicious salad dressing!
This post is sponsored by Califia Farms®, but the opinions are my own.
So excited to share this light and delicious summer salad with you guys!
Well, the star of this salad is clearly the dressing – it is sweet and tangy with just enough creaminess added in with the addition of some Califia Farms Unsweetened Almondmilk. We are always looking for ways to spice up our salads and this is going to be a new favorite!
I also love the charred pineapple and corn – it just adds a little extra something to the overall flavor of the salad! Feel free to grill the pineapple too if you want (or the corn for that matter!).
Can’t wait to see you guys make this one! (P.S. This would pair SO well with this Hibiscus Cherry Iced Tea Cooler!)
