Mangia Monday!

“To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomatist -- the problem is entirely the same in both cases. To know exactly how much oil one must put with one's vinegar.”
-Oscar Wilde

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was busy, yet fun and it still is not over! For those of you who over-indulged this weekend I have a simple, yet satisfying salad recipe for you. It is a quick, one dish meal - serve with bread and you are good to go!

What do you get if you cross a chicken with a cement mixer?
