I saw this meme earlier this week and could not help but think it was directed at me!

Maybe that is what got in my head this week because all I could think about were amazing salads.  Or it could have been the sunshine, the warm weather, the invite to go swimming with some of my friends…yep that’s what it was!

Swimming suit season is coming up quickly and salads always become my go-to meals as the weather gets warmer and the clothes get smaller!

Not a big believer in salads that you can crave?  Give me just a few moments and you will be converted!

This salad oozes deliciousness like no other salad can have!  But don’t be fooled like I was at first–those aren’t french fries in the salad! They are grilled peppers which are almost as good!

Berries, kiwi and feta in one salad with a strawberry poppyseed dressing–sounds like heaven to me!  I mean, is there ever too much of a good thing?  Not in this salad at least!

Alison

The kitchen is definitely my favorite place in any home. I love cooking but I also love how it brings people together. Although we lived in different cities growing up, I consider Sugar City, Idaho to be my hometown. Now, my husband and I live in Meridian, Idaho with our three not-so-little kids. My life is filled with good food, friends, and family—and it’s even better when I can find a great deal!

    That meme is my life!! I used Pinterest to plan my son’s entire birthday party and it was perfect. Now my husband asks to go under my account for ideas when he is trying to be creative *rolls eyes* lol

    I am a huge salad lover. Sadly though I like bread and pasta…A LOT!! Do you have any suggestions for me to start implementing more salads into my diet

      Hey Ashley, remember the first bite of bread is the best! You don’t have to eat a full slice, just try one or two bites. Make a nice big main dish salad and you won’t even miss your bread and pasta, promise! That’s how I live. Thanks for commenting and visiting.

    Those look seriously amazing. My problem with salads is that they get boring. These are definitely not boring. I think I could even talk my husband into the first one as a dinner.

      I think we all love fruits and avocados in salads. Cheers to your wife when she fixes you one. Snap a picture and we’ll share it!

    I am a huge salad fan and the ones here look delicious. Spring salads normally contain fruit right on time

      Oh I’m so glad you’re feeling inspired, and yes, fruits are in salads year-round, but especially in Springtime!

    This is so me! I love pintrest. I will lay in bed at night and pin until I fall asleep. Oh and on Saturday mornings I will not get out if bed until I’ve gotten my pintrest fix. When I need to do any DIY I go straight to pintrest!

      To each their own, Tony! I am not in love with onions so I always am the one person who leaves them on the plate! 🙂

    I thought that meme was hysterical… I guess some folks spend that much time on Pinterest. I love salads and make them for my family every day. We always have a salad with lunch and iItry to mix things up. Yum!
