Making a salad is a simple job but lazy me. I hardly make salads.
Salads are appreciated at my place so I should make them.
For the noisiest birthday, yes it’s my younger ones birthday I am talking about, noisy because she keeps on going on and on that it’s her birthday and she wants this and that. Keeps on changing her mind about this that becomes that in an instant, and makes me mad!
Anyway, we made this pasta and thinking not all my friends like pasta and the sauces that go with it I made this salad.
To say that the Pesto Rosso and this salad was a hit will not be an understatement. The least expected dishes became the empty ones much to my embarrassment.
