  1. Salad:

Clare’s Poppy Seed Salad… this is a perfect salad any day of the year but especially fun to take along to a Holiday gathering!  It’s a crowd pleaser for sure :)  If you’re not making it for a crowd, it can easily be cut down for a small group too.

Happy Wednesday and Happy Holidays too!  I hope you’re having a wonderful Holiday Season and that life is Merry and Bright this time of year…

Love,

Ruthie
