Inspiration & A Darn Good Salad

Inspired by a salad I saw over at Stacey Snacks I decided to put something similar together for dinner tonight.


I mixed a can of cannellini beans with some olive oil and celery. I chopped up some Kalamata olives and feta cheese. I added strips of homemade roasted red peppers and anchovies. I placed it all on top of bibb lettuce and dressed it with olive oil, lemon and thyme.



The finished product was light, refreshing and delicious. Thanks Stacey for the inspiration.

  3. You have a little Greek coupled with some Italian inspiration going on here and who could go wrong with those ingredients. Just delightful!

  6. I should take some of my own advice!
    I was on the salad wagon for 2 days, and today I baked a cake. I am an addict and need help.
    Your salad looks so good!
