Some of us prefer the salad with balsamic drizzle and some prefer it without, so I made it optional! I personally¬†love the balsamic and feel like it really adds to the flavor of the salad! Just start with a tiny bit if you add it so you don’t drown out all the other yummy flavors by pouring on too much! If you give this recipe a try, let us know which way you preferred it in the comments!
