Vacation Weekend

I am taking a couple days off to spend time with my family. So, I am leaving you with two of my favorite salads for this time of year. After a week of beer battering and frying and baking, nothing sounds better to me right now than a fresh summer salad!

Stone Fruit Salad with Poppyseed Dressing (I've been eating this salad at least three times a week now that the peaches are at their best!) Baby spinach or mixed greens are tossed with plenty of chopped fresh peaches, plums and/or nectarines, then drizzle with the best poppyseed dressing that I have ever tasted.

Cashew Chicken Salad with Grapes is a simple chicken salad with minimal ingredients and it is still one of my favorites. I love the sweetness of the grapes with the slight tang of the dressing. I make this salad frequently and the whole family enjoys it.

Have a blessed weekend and I will be back on Tuesday! 


  1. They both look good but I'm a big fan of the second one. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. The salad look delicious. Have a nice weekend off.

  3. Have a wonderful time. Thanks for the reminders of these salads - both look great!

  4. I hope you're having a fun time!

  5. Have fun chica! These salads are awesome!
