A Vintage Serving Bowl Fit for A Salad

A pretty vintage serving bowl was used for my dinner salad last night! I believe that your food presentation is worth the little extra effort to make it fabulous! Appealing to the eye and tummy! Here is what we started out with:

These pretty vintage serving bowls with just enough depth to use for a creative salad. Here is what I used in my salad:

Romaine lettuce

Small white beans marinated in Virgin Olive Oil and garlic salt

Pickled beets (healthy and pretty)

Shredded sharp cheese

Dressed with olive oil, Bratt’s vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

See the pretty roses peaking out from under the layered salad! Easy, healthy, pretty!

Collards, Kale Bacon & Eggs served on French Toile Plate


Worked a wee bit late last night and didn’t plan for dinner. Opened the fridge and found some leftover collard greens, kale and hard boiled eggs along with a package of bacon.

Decided to go somewhat healthy! Besides the bacon.


I diced 4 pieces of bacon and sauted over medium heat. Once they were cooked I removed the bacon but left the bacon fat.


Then I added my greens and let them wilt down, kept adding more because they really do wilt down. I used a 1/2 of a bag of kale and 1/4 of a bag of collard greens, all pre-cleaned and cut. I also added a 1/2 of on onion cut into half moons.


Secret ingredient, Bragg’s Organic Apple Cider Vinegar! I poured about 1 tablespoon and perhaps a dash more to the sauteing greens! Dash of pepper and very little salt because bacon is pretty salty! This literally took less then 5 minutes to make!



Once the greens were cooked down, I added the bacon back into the saute pan. Mixed it all together and I was ready to plate and add my sliced hard boiled egg.


So French so I thought I would go French Toile plate style!


Yummy~ so easy to make!
