A Delicious Dozen, No Lettuce Salads to enjoy!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

For so many years salad meant tossed greens and a creamy dressing. And while I still love a crisp bowl of hearty salad greens and a rich and creamy dressing, I have come to view salads in a different light. Salads are the perfect way to eat more vegetables, of all kinds! Cooked, roasted and raw, they all make wonderful salads. This offered selection is just a few of our favorite salads, we hope you find one or more to enjoy!

This salad is earthy while still being light enough to serve with most dinners or for lunch as a whole meal with whole-grain bread. Beets are a particular favorite of ours.
