Ben said his favorite thing about being married to a food blogger is all the shipments of food I get in the mail to sample. Not because he also gets to try all the goodies – no – he gets excited when a big brown box appears on the front porch because he gets to play with what the food’s usually packed in.
Because he gets to play MAD SCIENTIST – muwahahaHAHAHAHA!!!
That is pure joy on that man’s face. Pure, unadulterated joy. It certainly never gets boring around here!
ps I cannot WAIT to show you what was inside that box!!!!
The ingredient list is great and includes the juices of grape, cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, cranberry and blueberry. Nice.
I took some inspiration from the ingredients and loaded my salad with sweet & juicy fruits & berries! I started with a giant bowl of mixed greens, then topped them with strawberries,
blueberries, pomegranate arils,
(thanks Trader Joe’s!)
mango and baked tofu seasoned with garlic salt, olive oil and pepper.
I sprinkled the sky-high salad with almonds that I toasted real quick in a skillet with non-stick spray. Makes ALL the difference in its flavor!
Can I eat it yet?
How about now?!?!
Best Salad Ever!!
The dressing was slightly sweet – only slightly. Ben hates sweet food when it should be savory, and even he LOVED this. It was the perfect enhancement to all the sweet flavors in the salad. Refreshing & revitalizing!
That’s just feel good food, no?
And guess what? YOU can feel good too, because Wish-Bone is giving one reader an entire gift basket full of everything you need to build your own salad feast at home, including:
