Toni is my niece. She is bright, sweet, beautiful, fun, kind, thoughtful… well, you get the picture. Just an all-round really nice person and I love her to pieces. She is becoming quite an accomplished cook as well. But then she’s been inspired by the best, her mom (my sister).
Toni shared a recipe with me for a delicious salad dressing. We enjoyed it this evening over a simple salad of romaine greens, sliced yellow squash, red onions, a few raspberries and addicting caramelized almonds. I would have added feta or goat cheese if I had some. Aren’t the colors beautiful?
