Summer Salad with Creamy Honey Vinaigrette (Paleo)

This recipe is inspired by one of my favorite salads at a local restaurant.  I love it because its flavorful, has a mix of textures and a dressing that adds so much richness with just the right amount of sweetness.  I love a salad that is more then lettuce and protein.  I find the more I jazz it up, the more satisfied I am.  This salad does just that for me!
