Spring Tossed Salad

Copyright 2011 Christine's Pantry. All rights reserved.

I was glad to see spring, but its been hot and sticky here.Fresh salad sounds good on a hot day. I don't have a garden, so off to the grocery store. Bought a few things so I can toss this salad together in no time at all. It's quick and easy. This serves as a yummy side dish. Also good on its own. Makes a great lunch.

I miss my moms vegetable garden. I remember many days I was in the garden with mom, it was fun! Moms garden was huge. We lived in a small town, so we knew everyone. Often mom would have to many veggies, she would give our neighbors a bag of veggies. Then she would walk over to grandmothers house with a bag of veggies. If I had a garden, I'd grow more veggies then I needed, so I could give the extra veggies away.

Serve as a wonderful side dish to grilled chicken, roasted chicken, this would go with anything you desired. Good on its own.

  9. Hi Chris's Gourmet Fashion, thank you so much! You have a lovely blog too.

  10. My mom had a huge garden when I was a kid too, but I don't hve a green thumb at all! I wish I did though. I've got a small herb garden, and sometimes they make it, sometimes, not so much...

  11. Christine~ Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have been on a serious salad kick lately too. This warmer (or should I say hotter) weather really has me craving light meals like salads and sandwiches.

  12. I can image the crunch of those garlic croutons. Nice dressing.

  13. Sadly no garden for me this year. I'm impatiently waiting on the Farmers Market.

  14. Lovely post although it has made me hungry just as I'm about to go to sleep. Whoops!

  15. That is a nice salad recipe. Most of the days we (me & my wife at home) go only on salad and specially on weekends. We are experimenting with different kinds all the time.

    Thanks for vising me, following my blog and for the nice comment.

  16. Great summertime salad! Thanks so much for sharing Christine!

  17. I do not even know the way I ended up here,
    but I assumed this submit was good. I do not recognize who you are but
    certainly you are going to a well-known blogger
    should you aren't already. Cheers!
