Totally understandably why you rec'd requests for this recipe. The salad look so lovely. Nice that the boys do eat it too ;)


Oh, yum! Thanks so much! I am making this for dinner tonight. I just found your blog this week and I love it!


This looks yummy and so timely, since last night I looked at my jar of quinoa and thought, "I need to make a salad with quinoa this weekend." It's on the menu for tonight's dinner.
Last night I made your bacon biscuits with maple butter for dinner. They were FABULOUS. Everyone raved about them--my food picky son said, "Mom, these are great and contain my favorite flavors, bacon and maple. Make them again soon."
Your recipes are always a hit here. Thanks!

Do You need walnuts and mustard? My kids don't like mustard and we don't have any walnuts? Great recipe!!


Lively - The nuts are completely optional - feel free to replace them with seeds if you prefer. As for the mustard, it helps to emulsify the dressing but you can skip it if you prefer.


Hi, where is the bacon biscuits recipe somebody here is raving about? Getting curious but cannot find it in your index?
