Day 80 – Our “Stay Home. Stay Safe” order has been lifted, well sort of. They are doing a gradual phase in. Everything is not opening at once. That is okay with me!
We have several little nooks and crannies at our house that we can use as outdoor space. Off of our bedroom there is a porch that is open to the front through double sliding doors with a half wall across the front. Then there is a deck off the back of our room that opens from a door. Then there is the full back yard that is decked in with a sand pit for a fire pit (we have yet to install one) and a bricked area for eating. So there are plenty of places for us to go and be outside or slightly outside to get away from everything. We have not really used these spaces to their potential before now.
We are eating more and more picnic style. Grilling out and I love feeding my family salads like this because at least I feel like I getting something good and nutritious in them.
Verdict: This is a super light refreshing salad that would be great for a picnic or family gathering. It looks gorgeous with the green, red, and yellow colors in a white bowl. It has a bit of a Southwest flavor to it from the cumin but it would pair well with so many things including grilled fish, chicken, or beef.
We served it with beer can chicken and a pasta salad for a cookout.
