Summer Salads

Lisa Leonard Giveaway- JULY WINNER – posted on my TCB facebook.image

 

For some of you it’s DOG HOT out there and the thought of firing up that oven is out of the question.  Summer is such a great time to experiment with salads and get creative in the kitchen.  image Two Peas and Their Pod is a wonderful Foodie site. She and her husband have beautiful photos of amazing looking food.  They have had lots and lots of press and features……all well deserved…..I love that.image  Did I mention that I met her at the GNO in Utah?  Yep, another one of those amazing creative women.  image Watermelon salad?  Hmmm, I’ve never thought about adding those ingredients…..I’m usually just happy to have cubed watermelon.  This looks interesting.

Yum, and who doesn’t like tomatoes with basil and fresh mozzarella?  I think that’s what that is…….maybe they’ve created something different?imageAfter you have all that salad, you may as well eat some dessert!  And desserts are SO easy to find on her site.  She’s got a very extensive recipe index.  Very easy to navigate.image I’ve had these before…….My son would LOVE these below.  image

So yummy……..so many recipes to thumb through…..You’ll be in the kitchen for months…….but it’s a good thing.  Go surprise her about being featured on TCB!  I’ll let you tell her.

Don’t forget to enter the Lisa Leonard Necklace giveaway.  Every comment left in the month of August is entered.image

LOVE summer salads! Not so hot this summer in Alberta, Canada---maybe these summer salads will help me pretend it's summer......
I might even give the watermelon one a try! :-)
