Despite tropical storm Beryl threatening us with clouds and questionable weather, Memorial Day was beautiful. While the guys grilled some meats and a lovely sauteed veggie dish I prepared a salad bar! And to quote directly from Grumpy Granny "What's a salad? You define it. This is your playground."
This post is very picture-heavy mostly because there's nothing more beautiful than photos of food taken in natural sun light...and my friend Jessica let me use her fancy schmancy camera. Must. Upgrade. Soon! The salad bar included a spring and romaine mix of lettuce with grape tomatoes, cucumber, snow peas, pepitas and dried cranberries. We also had the grilled veggie mixture which included green and red peppers and zucchini plus some oven roasted asparagus and eggplant.

My salad was a base of the spring/romaine mix, topped with cucumber, grape tomatoes, pepitas, grilled green peppers, over-roasted eggplant and topped with asparagus. After I ate all the grilled veggies off the top I used a little Marzetti Simply Made Caesar dressing for the remaining greens and veg. The burger with American cheese and 1/2 sweet potato plus 1/2 a regular potato really rounded out the meal.
Here's to fresh veggies and hoping this vacation never ends!
