We went out of town this weekend to visit our friends at their home in Eugene. It was such a wonderful and relaxing weekend filled with people we love. My friend Lori, who is the best hostess around, made the most delicious and healthy dishes all weekend long. I had so much fun watching her create her recipes. She did ALL the work and all I had to do was take pictures and eat… how cool is that?!? This salad was delicious and beautiful. I loved the combination of the sweet strawberries and the crunchy cucumbers with the poppy seed dressing. It was a huge hit with all of us, including the kids. My son especially loved it and gobbled up every last bite. Thank you Lori for a wonderfully relaxing weekend filled with tasty food!
