That salad looks terrific! I love just about anything with goat cheese. And I just love your header. What little sweeties. Time does go so fast!


I love salads...my favourite combination includes mixed baby greens, strawberries, walnuts, feta cheese and balsamic vinagrette!


Lovely salad recipe! I guess Florida doesn't count as someplace to come up with a winter salad (although it sure is cold here this week!) but I eat one nearly every day for lunch. My mother used to make a Waldorf Salad in the winter, but my favorite is chicken, walnuts, gorgonzola and pears on arugula with a pear vinaigrette.
PS: Your boys are adorable. What a great age!


My family loves salad but one we love as a whole meal is a taco salad. In a big serving dish, we put romaine lettuce and spinach (not very mexican, but we like the flavor). We cut red and yellow peppers, greens onions, tomatoes and avocadoes. I arrange them over the lettuce. Add grated cheese, black beans and/or meat. Top with a lime/cilantro vinaigrette.

Now since I have one who does not eat tomatoes and avocadoes, she can help herself to a helping without them.

Add sour cream and salsa if desired. Eat with tortilla chips or baked tortillas.

It as a filling, healthy, delicious meal.
