Some salad love

I am going to miss eating salads. I wish I liked them in cold weather, but I just don’t. So I’m filling up on stuff like this until the temps starts to fall….

Cucumber Salad

Cucumbers and onions go so well with tomatoes and dill, don’t you think?

How about red and green lettuce with dried cranberries and walnuts?

Dried cranberries 'n' walnuts

Maybe add some green onions and crumbled Gorgonzola….


The other night I tossed together some strawberries, mangoes, coconut, pecans and golden raisins. A slight coating of orange blossom honey made it a light and refreshing fruit salad. Or dessert, if you’re watching calories.

End of Summer Salad

Great weekend, everyone! Monday is a holiday in the U.S. (Labor Day) but I’ll post a photo.

    Yummy food and pictures. I don’t eat much in the way of salads outside of the summer months instead I seek comfort foods like big pots of homemade Chicken Dumpling soup or Wild Rice Soup. Something to warm me from the inside out. Have a wonderful weekend.

    I don’t mind eating salad in winter but I wouldn’t eat soup in summer. But I love soup.
    Those salads look very appetizing. Dil and cucumbers go incredibly well together. I thought at first it was Greek salad.

    Wow do those look delicious! I’m going to try the cranberry/walnut/blue cheese. Yum.

    I’m with you about salads in winter. I end up going with a lot of soups.

    Oh yum! Where to begin … they all look delicious. Photographing food and making it look this tantalizing is a difficult challenge that you make look easy, Carole. Have a good weekend too! I’m a soup lover too but when I’m craving greens in the ‘brrrr’ weather, I lightly steam romaine in tact, then slice it like a loaf of bread and add ‘whatever’ I’m in the mood for … try it sometime and let me know what you think
