    The salad looks inviting. The cold, snow and dipping temps are still linering around even though we are officially in Spring. This salad gives the summer feel 🙂

    This is a lovely looking salad Yelena and something that many Northerners would be just desperate to get stuck into. I would personally ditch the egg but the rest is sheer scrumptiousness 🙂

    Good morning!

    It's beautiful, fresh & delicious, I know it as a fact. In Brazil is common to have soft boiled egg in salads, here in America is not, but since I started making it, my American husband fell in love.
    This recipe is one to make, and soon.
