I love salad

My awesome salad of awesomeness
This was my dinner tonight: Mixed greens, hard boiled egg, cheddar cheese, croutons, almonds, pecans, carrots, and raisins. Every once in a while I go through a phase where I am obsessed with salads and eat them at all possible times. This has nothing to do with wanting to be healthy or needing veggies. This past summer it had to do with an abundance of berries (super yummy in salads) and other times it often has to do with finding the perfect dressing. This weekend is once of those times.

Salad Girl Pomegranate Pear Dressing

Yesterday I went to a Green Christmas Gifts Expo with some friends and they had food samples, including Salad Girl salad dressing. While I had tasted it before, I had forgotten about it. I also hadn't bought it originally because it's a little on the pricey side. But it's winter and I was feeling like it was time for a new salad dressing, so I splurged and bought pomegranate pear dressing and mixed greens. And Oh My Goodness. This is the type of salad dressing that you would have an affair with, if you could have affairs with salad dressing (which, thankfully, you cannot). Ben almost had to get out his camera last night cause I had to lick the bowl I tossed my salad in to get all the dressing I could out. That's the type of commitment I have to this dressing. It is silky and tangy and mixes perfectly with all the other ingredients that were hanging out in my fridge and cupboards waiting to be tossed in a salad. Sadly it's only available in Minnesota, as it's a small local company (with a circa 1999 website), but if you're in the area, check it out. It's well worth it.

ONLY AVAILABLE IN MINNESOTA?! This is the cruelest post ever. I want that salad.

See! You have to come and visit! Then you can get dressing for yourself :)

Katie - I think that Cambodian sausages would not be first on the list of desired treats for the lab, but we'll see what we can do.

Simon's wish list is growing. Are we paying attention?

"I had to lick the bowl I tossed my salad in"

Mom - That is true, but by that point they may be desperate. Also, what else is on Simon's list. I guess I will have to start paying closer attention.. (oops!)

Reid - I know! I know! I thought about that even as I was writing. How can I not make this sound bad? In other words, how can I phrase this so that Reid won't point it out to me? :/ FAIL
