During this season of joy and celebration, it's fun to make some festive holiday dishes.
And I can't think of anything that says Christmas like this Holiday Candle Salad, can you??
Seriously, my fifth grade teacher Miss Bunny told me about this holiday treat via Facebook over the summer, and I could not wait for it to come into season! (I should note the topic came up in a discussion thread about "pear salad," another dubious holder of a "salad" title. Why do we Southerners think having fruit, a lettuce leaf and mayonnaise makes something a salad?)
Now, if you were admiring our mantle decorations...as I'm sure you were...Kurt and I picked out some greenery at the Union Square market last Saturday.
We shopped around for a while...it was a gorgeous day to be outside.
P.S. Do you think I should leave him a candle salad on Christmas Eve instead of some cookies?
