Welcome to the new look of Taste and Tell!!  Please bear with me for the next few days as I get used to this new blogging platform and figure out any problems and changes we are dealing with.  I’m so excited for this new change!!  Please let me know if you have any questions or if something is missing or not working.  I know there are a few items we are working on right now, but hopefully everything will but up and working shortly!

This salad – oh, this salad.  I needed to bring a salad to a family get-together, and I flipped open my handy family cookbook.  I couldn’t get past this salad, even though the title says “summer” and it was still winter when I made this.  I don’t know who Steph is, but I am so grateful to her for this salad recipe because it is amazing!!  I am one that loves fruit in my salad anyway, but the combination of the fruits and veggies in this salad, combined with the amazing dressing – this salad is pretty much perfection!
