I know it doesn’t look like much but this salad is truly amazing and dressed to impress. It’s my go-to special occasion salad and it never fails me. It is so easy to make and it’s one of the birthday boy’s favorites.

I’ll admit that my kid did not have even one bite BUT the next day he finally tried lettuce for the first time and immediately declared that he liked it and ate like a rabbit. I think this awesome salad is in his future.  Now for the recipe…
