A truly delicious little salad to go with just about anything, something a little different. I can’t wait for spring, and am just plain old tired of winter. It’s supposed to be almost over, but people in the east are getting hit with thunder snow and 6 days with no power.

While you can’t walk outside and pick tomatoes and basil right now, you can still tease your senses and buy them at the store, and add a little summer to your extra long winter. We had this as a side dish last Friday with our amazing Lemon Thyme Salmon and these French Green Beans with Almonds.

It only sounds like we splurged on this dinner. We had been eating out on Fridays, and decided to take that money and make our own fancy dinner and stay home for our date night. We did come out ahead and we cooked together, so it makes for a really nice evening and you can have as much wine as you want!

You hear of some bloggers making a small fortune, unfortunately I came to that party late, so I’m not one of them. I just can’t afford a team of people cranking out recipes or have virtual assistants handling my social media accounts. (Yeah that’s a thing) Most of us can only hope to reach that level one day. So if your living on a tight budget I hope you follow along we do our best to share budget friendly recipes that make you feel like your being treated at a fancy restaurant.
