You actually don't need to turn on the stove to make a salad, but I wanted to put that in there because it sort of sounds like a porno premise. Hope she gets there before the cleaning lady.
Anyway, please do try making this salad with carrots if you have a vegetable peeler. Hey, you can stick anything in the salad as long as it sounds good to you and you cover all the requisite colours (red, orange, yellow, green). Try cutting up two or three peaches and using them instead of the yellow pepper. That sounds like it would be nice. Or throw in a plum and some blueberries and go through the whole rainbow. Yes, you can but both fruits and vegetables in a salad. No, it's not illegal.
It appears all the tomatoes were eaten by the time this picture was taken but you get the idea. Credit for this photo goes to my lovely friend Heather of the blog She's So Lovely.
I made that salad, but that's not my house. I don't have any star-shaped biscuits such as the half-eaten one you see on the side of the plate. I also don't have any matching wineglasses.
