Summer Salad

Here is a simple summer salad recipe for your enjoyment!!!

When we were in Phoenix in June, our son's friend, Maria, made this salad for Josh and I. It was so good!!! It is a light, refreshing, yummy salad and so easy to make!!! And you can see that it is also beautiful!!!

The lettuce-endive-I found at Safeway. I will admit, I did not know what an endive looked like!!! I do now!

I used my vegetable peeler for the carrot to give nice thin pieces in the salad. You could buy already grated carrots but I think using a whole carrot and peeling it yourself is a lot fresher!!!

I used a knife to peel the orange in order to get all the white pith off. Although I did read that it is good for you, so leave it on if you wish.

I must also mention that Maria's main dish was Paella and you can click on the link to check it out. I can tell you that it was heaven on a plate!!! Oh-My-Goodness!! So Good!!! Paella has all kinds of seafood in it, vegies and rice. And Saffron!! I knew there was Saffron because of the color of the rice. Maria is from Madrid Spain, and Paella is one of their wonderful meals!!! I watch a lot of travel shows, my favorite is Globe Trekker and I had seen Paella made on one of their foodie shows. It was so awesome to actually have the opportunity to enjoy Paella!!!

We really had an amazing meal that night! Thank you so much Maria!!! :^)
