A Day In Providence (Grandma Reggie's Salad)

A day in Providence.

Wes loves to point (it's kind of his thing). Here we were scoping out a seriously tall tree.

The tree and its foliage.

First Baptist Church of America on the east side is just so pretty.

Lunch at The Garden Grill

A visit to the state house lawn.

Playing with Poppa Choppa,

in the leaves,

leads to a leafy butt (only comes but one time of year),

and a tuckered boy.

The sun was bright that day,

And shone on us, everywhere we went.

It could cast a perfect shadow.

And put a real smile on your face.

The Garden Grill's Grandma Reggie's Raw Heaven Salad

This is my favorite, it is so simple yet SO delicious, colorful, beautiful.
  • baby arugula
  • mango
  • avocado
  • grapefruit
  • beet-infused jicama
  • cashew gomasio
  • lime juice
  • olive oil

Jicama is like the love child of an apple and a potato. Crisp, watery, hint of sweet. They marinate theirs in beet juice to turn it magenta.

Cashew gomasio is ground cashew tossed with sea salt.

Isn't she beautiful?

The dressing for this salad couldn't be simpler. 2 Tbl of Fresh squeezed lime juice and 2 Tbl of olive oil. This is a bright fresh flavored salad to eat between the Holidays, giving yourself a break from all the heavy.
