It’s the first day of Spring! Unfortunately it didn’t look like this at all today, but that didn’t stop me from celebrating. I had an overload of leftover produce and what better than to throw it all into a salad!
This whole weekend has been yucky, cold & gray. I had plans that ended up getting rained out, so today was spent lazying around, watching movies on Netflix and eating fast food. If you have Netflix, I would recommend watching The One I Love (very weird & interesting movie!), and if you’re going to gorge on cheeseburgers & milkshakes for lunch, I recommend having this salad for dinner! 😉
Please keep in mind that this salad can be endlessly personalized. The red pepper, green onions, broccoli and bacon were leftovers in my fridge. It all came together quite nicely. I boiled the eggs in the morning so they could chill before dinner. Cook up the bacon until crispy, slice up your veggies, and whisk together the delicious dressing I got from Martha Stewart. I like to pile up the plates with lettuce, then sprinkle the different ingredients over. It saves a bowl and makes for a pretty presentation. Spoon over dressing just before serving.
It might not look like Spring yet out there, but that doesn’t mean Spring can’t be found in the kitchen!
