A weekend of salad making

On Saturday, Tony and I had our first party at the new house, our house. B We were celebrating his Dad’s 75th birthday. B We debated how to go best about serving food and in the end decided to make it ourselves. B Tony made two types of humus (from chickpeas andB black beans), as well asB ItalianB roasted fries, buffalo chicken, turkey and hamburgers. B I on the other hand stuck to what I know, produce.

I stopped by the farmer’s market on Friday atB CopleyB and brought those cool rainbow carrots, chives, and cucumbers which I forgot to use! B My first task was to cut up some veggies for the humus. B I pickedB celery, yellow pepper,B zucchini, those yellowB SunkistB tomatoes.

Next came the salads

Baby Spinach, Red Onion, Orange and Red Pepper, Sunkist Tomatoes,B CeleryB & Dill dressed in an Olive Oil VinegarB mix

Then I got busy on my current summer addiction!

Baby Spinach, Orange & Red Peppers, Tomatoes, Red Onion, Dill, Chickpeas, Goat Cheese drizzled with a little bit of Olive Oil

And ended with my favorite Russian Salad! B I’ll share the recipe but for now all I’ll say is that it involves pickles!

I wish I had pictures from the party but once the guests came I was too busy making sure things were up and running to be aB paparazzi!
