Salads salads salads!

I am spending my afternoon in a cozy coffee shop, watching snow/sleet/ice fall from the sky. Spring has to show up eventually, right?! I thought of a good plot for a Stephen King-esque novel this morning. Winter never leaves and by July, yard glaciers that have grown giant teeth are present in every yard north of Missouri. The hungry glaciers are able to swallow humans in a single, swift bite. Humans unite and fight the battle against this new, icy breed.

Uhhh, yeah. As you can see, I have crossed the line into crazy.

I actually sat down to write about something that has nothing to do with winter. Salads! I love salads. Eating salads makes me feel hopeful that the weather will change. And like grilled cheese sandwiches, there is so much room for creativity. So I thought I would share some of my favorites with you on this snowy spring day. Enjoy!  

By the way, our yard glacier (the toothless variety, thank you) is still standing. I didn't want to subject my camera to the elements this morning, but I'll take a pic tomorrow so you can gauge whether or not you are in the running to win $200!
