  1. I always look for new salad ideas. I don’t really like the conventional green salad but I should eat more healthy. I love avocados, so I definitely will try out this salad:) It looks delicious and perfect for hot summer days. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Besides looking like a beautiful piece of art I could hang on my wall (great pics!), the salad sounds amazing! Without all the heavy mayonnaise that usually accompanies pasta salads, this looks like the perfect salad to take to a barbecue. I can’t wait to try it!

  3. I am in so love with those gorgeous mugs you’ve used as salad bowls. I’ve never thought of using them in that way before, so thanks for the inspiration!
