Cranberry, Apple, and Avocado Salad

An odd thing happened to me on the way to work today.

{I didn’t freeze to death.}

I was fairly certain that it was going to happen. It. Was. Frigid. 


So cold that I didn’t bother to put on makeup because I was certain that my eyes would water uncontrollably (sort of like what happens to me when I watch The Notebook– a most bizarre and abnormal occurrence, I assure you).

Today’s recipe is brought to you by the letter: S for Splotchy-Complexion-That-I-Should-Still-Have-Worn-Makeup-Over. Ha. Kidding.             Kinda.

Today’s recipe is indeed brought to you by the letter S, but not for the aforementioned reason, but for SALAD!!!

Have you ever been really excited about a salad? I mean really jazzed about the little bowl of healthiness.

A good salad sets the tone of the day. I mean. I just stared at the clock until it was lunchtime, so that I could eat the salad. And I didn’t even make it to lunchtime. I devoured it at an unacceptably early time (which I will not share with you… Okay, so 10:30, twist my arm!), not because I was hungry, but because it looked so goshdern good.

You feel this way often about salads, don’t you?! Okay, so it may just be me.

You’ll very quickly see why I am exuberant over a bowl of roughage. BECAUSE IT’S DELICIOUS (hello?!) and I no longer have to feel overly guilty about lightly sampling one or two cookies devouring a plateful of cookies at Christmastime, a couple of weeks ago.

  1. Ooh! I love the idea of adding apples and cranberries. It also perfectly suits our hot weather at the moment (sorry if that is a cruel thing to say) so I shall be tucking it away to try :)

  2. Oh the cold! I’m glad to be back in warm Texas! Thank you for sharing yet another delectable post. I’m exhausted after my first day back from vacation, but happy to be reading your words and seeing your eats! I hope you are doing well, my friend.
