  1. Scrolling FB and I see this Beautiful salad. Looked at the ingredients and was Thrilled I had all the ingredients! (This never happens:) I did the only responsible thing, and made it right away. SO Fantastic! I just finished my bowl and I had visions of licking my bowl clean for every last bit of goodness. THANK YOU for a new family favorite!

  2. It sure is the time of year when salad seems like THE best food choice for both lunch and dinner. But for those of us who like variety, we are always open to new combos. I have often used zucchini in salad, but not as the main driver of the dish. Great idea.
