I had this for lunch today.
I walked out to my garden, opened the garden gate and picked the spinach. How’s that for fresh? I wish I could say the strawberries were from our strawberry plants, but no. They aren’t ready yet.
I enjoy gardening and especially enjoy reaping the benefits from it. We are now growing raspberries and I think I will have to try raspberries on this salad. The colors will be gorgeous!
I made the mistake of taking a picture of this with my phone and sending it to my husband. (I might have been rubbing it in a little. Ahem.) However, he was nearby and could stop in for lunch. He called after he got the text and asked if I could make him one too. Sure, why not. I mean, could I deny him this? A meatatarian enjoying a salad. Nice to see some green on his plate. 🙂
I already knew the salad was delicious. The combination of strawberries, apples and honey dressing compliments each other so well. I wasn’t sure how he would like the dressing, being a ranch on everything kind of guy.
He drizzled a little on the side of his salad, took a bite and said:
Oh my. That is good.
The rest of the salad received the dressing. 🙂
