Food Friday

Its my FIRST Food Friday!! Ok so I kind of cheated I have made this salad once before { for Kael's Christening } but the truth is we went to Jays Mom Moms house last Saturday and she sent us packing with a TON of delicious frozen Italian food so my fridge is packed and it didn't really make sense for me to make a big dish when we already have so much food to get through. I didn't want to flake out on my first Food Friday so I decided I would make this salad to go with our Italian dishes. Ok first off I have to give credit where credit is due my friend Steph Schneider who lives up the street from me made me this salad one night when Kael was first born Jay was traveling, I was feeling overwhelmed hadn't ventured our of the house in days { read: weeks } and I was wearing the same PJ's I wore home from the Hospital { JK...kinda } she came and she saved me from a life of shoving my hands in the pretzel bag and introduced me to real people life again { aka this salad } It is amazing I still haven't mastered making it as well as she does { what IS it that you put in it Steph? it crack } So since she gave it to me in my time of need I am giving it back to YOU So simple so tasty..enjoy!!
Baby Romaine Lettuce
Bacon { I use turkey bacon }
Granny Smith Apples
Feta Cheese
Walnuts, Almonds { Any kind of nut you desire } Truth: I forgot the nuts but Jay didn't even notice
Strawberries { I got a little crazy at the end and added these in on my own }

Tip for the bacon is taste better if the bacon is really really crsipy adds a nice CRUNCH to the salad
