Use these salad ingredient ideas and a homemade healthy salad dressing to create a fruit-filled, refreshing side salad to pair with your favorite pie from amongst our pizza toppings list. For our salads, my friend Natalie Lubsen mixes a simple dressing with nutritional yeast that she learned how to make at a summer retreat at the Hollyhock Lifelong Learning Centre in British Columbia, Canada.
