I’d love to share a great salad that is requested often at parties:
RECIPE: SPRING INTO SUMMER SALAD
2 packages of pre-washed Spring Salad Mix
1 half yellow pepper, cut into long slices
1 half orange pepper, cut into long slices
1 medium sized cucumber, skinned and cut into slices
1 package shredded cheese–your choice
1 small container of feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup dried cranberries (infused with blueberry is my favorite)
2 cups herb croutons
Honey Mustard Salad dressing to taste (I use Ken’s Steak House)
Optional — honey roasted pecans
Combined all ingredients and chill.
GARDENING TIP — ORCHIDS
I had such a terrible time keeping my orchids alive until my hair stylist gave me this tip:
Once every two weeks, gently take your orchid out of its container (if it does not have proper drainage) and saturate with water, allowing all access to drain for several minutes. The object is to water your orchid without drowning it. Make sure there is no excess water. Place orchid back into its pot. The best place to display your orchid is on the west side of your house, for the sunset’s rays. So far this has worked really well for me.
