And a Pansy or Two

Here we go again --- another simple table setting.
Flowers on the menu
and an uncomplicated family supper.

Romaine, mixed garden greens, tomatoes, 
sweet onions, and sugar peas were the 
ingredients for a fresh salad garnished with 
pansy, daisy, and marigold blossoms.

The flowers sure made the salad colorful 
and inviting! And, they are all edible.

The salad dressing was a quick 
homemade vinaigrette made from 
olive oil,  lemon juice, Bragg's Liquid 
Aminos (or soy sauce), salt,  stevia
and Italian Seasoning. Blend together  
until emulsified and then pour 
into a pretty little pitcher.

  1. What a great looking salad and my kind of meal. Your simple table is divine. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Your salad is too gorgeous to eat. I would just want to sit there and admire.

  3. Eating at your house would be such a pleasurable experience! Lisa :o)

  4. Oye! Now I'm hungry...
    Looks just right!

  5. Dinner sounds yummy! Though I'm still not sure about eating flowers. :) I remember there was some sort of weed outside my Mammaw's house in Mississippi that we used to go outside to pick and eat when we were there. I wonder what it was -- can't even remember the taste of it now. Have a fabulous Friday! Tammy

  6. The pansies make the meal perfect, for the eye and the stomach. Spring is a wonderful time of year.
