Opening up our home to family and friends is something that I love and cherish. To make people feel welcome and feel at home is so special and so valuable. Especially when we all gather around the table. So many of my deep relationships have been formed and grown while sitting and eating.
We had a girls lunch at our apartment one day. My mom, sister, and baby niece came over to chat and to eat salads. The weather was perfect and we ate these summer salads outside. (well, we ate, while baby slept...)
- grated carrots
- almond bits
- sweet bell peppers
- dried cranberries
- chicken breast
- ranch dressing
- dorothy lynch dressing
- all topped on spinach & spring salad mix
The only thing my sister was requesting was hard-boiled eggs. Maybe cheese would have been good too? But man, did those salads taste sweet, savory, & refreshing!
