Fresh, spring-like and scrumptious! Romaine lettuce is so delicious.

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.
