Kentucky is suffering “WINTER STORM 2015” according to our local weather. Dramatic much?! It really is pretty snowy though. We have about 7 inches right now. Not much for the Yanks but a pretty good snow for us Kentuckians. Thankfully it is a light powdery snow so maybe we will keep our power throughout the night. The next few days promise to be miserably cold. I am not excited.

I am excited about this salad though. It is delicious and beautiful. I can’t wait to take it to work. I won’t be tempted to order out when I know I have this meal waiting on me.
