And now it’s time for me to share some of my favourite recipes I’ve been cooking up! I’m coming back! Unless I’m interrupted by one or more of my handsome men.
This salad is my favourite thing to make right now. I just took a little breather from it because I’d hate for Tom and Nolan to dread eating it every night. It makes for such a good summer lunch that I like to hoard for myself then I allow Nolan to eat the rest as a snack. Or lately it’s been such a great side to a perfectly bbq’ed chunk of meat and grilled veggies!
I promise it’s so good that I’m salivating as I share it with you. I like to go heavy on the tomatoes which is going to be even more wonderful now that my tomato plants are ready! This salad is guaranteed to please your taste buds!
