“The Best Goddamn Salad I Ever Had!”

“The Best Goddamn Salad I Ever Had!”

So my sister’s Gender Reveal Party was this weekend. I spent about 80% of my time helping prep for it, which included (but was not limited to) slow cooking two giant hunks of pork butt, hanging adorable onesies up on clotheslines, picking up a two-tiered cake (the star of the night!) and picking out a side dish to make.

Well, I felt a bit overwhelmed by all my duties… so I picked a random salad from Pinterest for my side dish. I thought ‘Hey, this sounds decent, easy and relatively cheap!’ .

Oh my god, I never expected a SALAD to get so much praise. Particularly a salad I put little to no thought into, FORGOT an ingredient for and one that required no effort other than slapping ingredients into a bowl! Seriously though, so many random people sought me out to either A) Explain how ‘To die for’ the salad was or B) Ask for the recipe!

Anyways, I wasn’t going to post the salad to my blog, but obviously it earned its keep.

All thanks and credit is due to Lemon Tree Dwelling . I do want to say I couldn’t actually find Golden Balsamic Vinegar, so I used a particularly delicious balsamic from HEB (click the link if you are curious). To make up for the change, I also added a bit more honey. At my sister’s request, I added a bit of salt to the dressing as well. OH, I also forgot the almonds (haha!), in the crazy of throwing it together five minutes before the food line was opened to fifty hungry souls.
