Strawberry Salad…Feed the Soul

It’s not too often that you add something new to your “favorites” list…but last week, I did! 

Red Gerber Daisies…

Aren’t they gorgeous!?  Vibrant and Simple…just the way I like ’em!

Every now and then Ryan likes to surprise me with flowers…and every now and then, I buy my own!  🙂  I’m usually a huge fan of tulips and peonies and roses…but this week, we added Gerber Daisies.  Ryan came home with these because quite honestly, HyVee was out of just about everything else…oh, and they matched our living room!  That part is key.  LOL

Thank you Ryan for surprising me with flowers.  I appreciate them.  And I love you.

While we are on the topic of favorites (and items that match our living room), I decided to share another one of my favorite salads with you.  The first time I had a salad very similar to this one, I was in Minneapolis having dinner with my dear friend Delaney.  She made it…and I loved it.  Little does she know, I have been making it ever since (and believe me, it has been years).


  • Spring Mix Salad
  • Strawberries, sliced
  • Almonds, sliced (I use “Almond Accents, Butter Toffee Glazed”)
  • Craisins or Dried Cranberries
  • Goat Cheese or Feta, optional
  • Annie’s Balsamic Dressing

Combine the first 5  ingredients and drizzle with Annie’s Balsamic Dressing. 

For a fresh summer salad, you have to try this one.  Thank you Delaney!

Enjoy this salad yet this week…and pick yourself up some flowers for the table!   Remember:

“Bread feeds the body, indeed, but flowers feed also the soul.” ~Unknown

Indulge.  In Life.  In Love.  In Food.
