Glad to see there are still some Salad Freaks about! This has been the perfect week for salads....the weather is crazy hot, especially for May.

The shrimp/mango salad sounds yum, 100, but it wasn't my pin. Mangos are so difficult for me to buy - they're expensive and never seem to ripen properly - so I try to ignore recipes with them. Hope your sick kid is feeling better.


Going2BeThatGirl - Steak....yummmmm.

Hi everyone seems like you guys have been in this challenge for 5 days now anyone starting it again? I would be interested to do this. Although salad for breakfast doesnt sound apetizing.

Saturday Salads

Breakfast
Chocolate-Avocado Breakfast Salad (recipe) with Cocoa & Chile Rubbed Pork Chop (recipe) (leaf lettuce, apples, pork chop, chocolate-avocado sauce)

Lunch/Dinner
California Cobb Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette (recipe) (romaine, leaf lettuce, chicken, bacon, hard-cooked eggs, tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, strawberries, dressing)



ETA: Chocolate + lettuce = weird. It wasn't bad, but my brain was very confused. The Cobb Salad was yummy; I really loved the dressing.
