Strawberry and Spinach Salad w/ Pistachios


Such a delightful salad. Who knew that pistachios would go so well with this combo. I decided to try it since I bought a huge bag from my local warehouse store.

Whisk together the last 7 ingredients. Slowly whisk in oil until well blended. Place in refrigerator until chilled. At least 30 minutes.

Iced Sicle


I had this new Iced Cake Vodka a couple of oranges and immediately thought it would be good with half and half. It’s kind of like a Dreamsicle minus the liqueur.
