This salad is really similar to the second blog post I ever posted on this site! I think I was a pretty good cook when I first started this blog, but my creativity in the kitchen and cooking abilities have really evolved since then. This is the first of a few recipes that I really liked but wanted to kick up a notch, and I also really wanted to re-do the photos!
I’m not a huge city girl, the town I grew up in only had about 2,000 people, but one nice thing about living in a big city is that there is always something fun going on. This weekend was the Meet Yourself festival in downtown Tucson, affectionately nicknamed the Eat Yourself festival because it is pretty much just a bunch of food vendors! We were excited to get out of the house and go downtown but it was SO hot down there! It was so hot that they had sunblock stations set up. It didn’t feel at all like I would hope mid-October weather to feel. All I wanted to do was bury my head in my raspberry sorbet!
We did have a lot of fun but I was a hot mess and I’m pretty sure i got sunburned through the thick layer of sunblock I was wearing! Basically my mind is all about this fall quinoa salad and this salad and these muffins but the Arizona weather just won’t catch up! I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some cooler weather soon because I have lots more fall recipes planned for you 🙂
