Splash a Bit of Love Into Your Salads this February

What words come to mind when you hear, "February?" Love...hearts...chocolate...Aquarius...Valentines
Long ago I realized that Valentine's dinner really should not be a heavy meal. Who wants to go out to a romantic dinner only to come home and feel so full that you go right to sleep? Not me! So, try this menu this Valentine's Day or any other day of the year!
Love the "Lite" Menu
Grilled Shrimp Kebabs with Lemon Zest
Strawberry Salad (see recipe below)
Warm Pita Bread
Dark Chocolate Squares
Strawberry Salad
4 cups Baby Greens
1/2 cup Walnuts, Pecans, Pine nuts, or Macadamia nuts, chopped
1/8 Red Onion, thinly sliced
1 cup Strawberries, sliced or quartered
1 oz Goat cheese of Feta, crumbled
3 Tb. Brianna's Blush Vinaigrette (the bottle has a strawberry on it)
Assemble, toss, and enjoy!

I cannot tell you how many times I've made this exact salad for parties, etc. People REQUEST it! When I tell them how easy it is, they refuse to acknowledge it and just make me bring it to them. Always happy to oblige!
