Wow. I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted (about a month and a half)! And it’s been almost just as long since I’ve cooked or baked something from Around My French Table.
And I’m afraid I haven’t been shooting much lately, either. Jim, the boys, and I took a road trip to Florida in March to visit family, and I didn’t even shoot much while I was there. I’m feeling out of touch with my camera … like I’ve lost my groove.
As far as French Fridays are concerned, this salad was all it took to get inspired and get back to cooking out of that awesome book.
This salad is easy and delicious. All of the flavors and textures are wonderful. My choice of fruits and nuts were dried apricots, raisins, golden raisin, pepitas, sunflower nuts, and almonds. My herb of choice was cilantro, and its pop really rounded out the salad perfectly.
Now, off to get back in the photography groove.
It was nice to have an easy side dish this week. And let me tell you, these beans are as delicious as they are easy.
Bacon makes everything better.
