Two Pretty Girls . . . and 500 SENSATIONAL SALADS

When I woke up the other morning, I felt puzzled and looked all around the bedroom.  Where was Maybelle?  
Miss you, girl!

But then I realized I had a date with another special grand-dog . . .

Yay Vesper!

*******
Food Focus:  SUPER SALADS!  from the well-named 500 SENSATIONAL SALADS

A Tomato-Cucumber-Mint Salad made our dinner perfect when paired with

an Eggs Benedict Pizza  (California Pizza Kitchen Cookbook),

Asparagus with Egg & Lemon Sauce complemented a French Pork Pie

but then the Sweet-and-sour Cucumber Salad with Chillies, Cilantro, and Mint absolutely dazzled the next day with the leftover

Tourte des Vallées.

Last night, we loved the Green Bean & Sweet Red Pepper Salad with Ukrainian

Cottage Cheese Dill Buns

500 SENSATIONAL SALADS, edited by Julia Canning is available online for $17.32. 
It’s very well-illustrated and full of unusual recipes.  I made its “Tropical Fruits” for Thanksgiving in 2013 and blogged that. 

Definitely a Yum, Yum Cookbook!
