Chapter 2 page 518– Salad Sun-Sation

I’m getting spring fever.  For the 2nd week in a row, the temps are in the upper 40’s and even hitting 50 degrees.  It’s killing me because I know that we are going to have winter and it’s going to feel extra harsh given we are having this incredible spring weather. 

The other day I was desperate for one of my favorite summer time salads so . . . I made it -


Fresh cut red and green leaf lettuce, feta cheese, mandarin oranges (should have used a fresh Sugar Belle – oops, forgot), fresh strawberries, craisins, pistachios, pecans, and a drizzle of Balsamic Vinaigrette. 

A close up for your taste buds . . . doesn’t it just look like summer?  YUM!


What are your favorite salad toppings?  Depends on what kind of salad I ‘m hungry for.  I like feta or blue cheese.  I like eggs and sunflower seeds.   I never liked fruit on my salads until a year ago, now I’m a big fan! 


  1. The ones you listed are some of my favorites. I also like moz cheese, green onions, pomegranates, bacon, and/or craisins.


  2. Okay, I am not a fruit on salad kind of girl, but that salad looks FANTASTIC!

  3. You put feta on a salad? I'm shocked! Ha! Looks so good.

    I'm a big fan of a veggie-packed salad: asparagus, artichoke hearts, alfalfa sprouts, orange bell peppers, tomatoes, peas, red onion ... did I miss anything? I also like those pepper rings. And olives. Green olives.It's all good - as long as you don't forget the ranch ;)

  4. Makes me even more hungry. "L"

  5. Looks Yummy!!! I like to crumble some bacon too. Yummy!

  6. OMG your salad looks to die for. I want one now.

  7. Oh wow! That looks wonderful!!!
