^^Two friends came over to pick greens from my garden. Instead of throwing leaves in a bag like I would have done, they made these beautiful bouquets as they picked them!
Do you know the difference between a good salad and a great salad? It’s all in the dressing. I love homemade salad dressings, but all too often resort to honey and olive oil, or prepared pesto, because when I’m hungry I’m ready to eat 5 minutes ago! But this week I was in search of something different, so I made this Creamy Vegan Salad Dressing from my friend Anne’s blog. The base is made from – wait for it – cauliflower!
Check out Anne’s site for the recipe. Just steam up some cauliflower and blend with herbs, oil, and lemon juice and you have a real-food dressing in a minute – what a great idea!
I used it to make a salad-in-a-jar dinner to take with me to the pool.

Then there’s this graphic I made a few years back!
