Hi Everyone! I hope all is well in your neck of the woods. Wishing for summer with no more of these bad crazy weather days. We've been lucky so far with just tornado warnings. My thoughts and prayers are on the rest of the country that's been affected. It is so very sad. Normal ordinary days are just fine with me.
My friend served this salad at a Mary Kay party a few weeks back. We loved it!! So much so that last night at dinner I only remembered to take a picture for you when there was just bits left in the bottom of the bowl. It's that good. Simple and pretty, perfect for a picnic. Can you believe Memorial Day is upon us already??
Happy Wednesday ~ Jenn xo
Sweet Summer Salad
1/2 cup (cut small) Strawberries
1/2 cup chopped Mangos
1 cup Candied Pecans chopped (or Walnuts*)
Baby Romaine or any kind of Spring Mix
(I did big handfuls of both the spinach and romaine)
2 Green Onions chopped
Gorgonzola Cheese ~ to you liking
Toss all together in bowl and set aside.
1/8 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/8 cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Canola Oil
1 TBSP Dijon Mustard
Salt and Pepper
Put all in a cruet or sealed jar and shake.
Mix together with salad right before serving.
*If you can't find candied pecans or walnuts, add a little sugar and the nuts to a skillet and stir until sugar becomes melty. Let cool.
