Ben said his favorite thing about being married to a food blogger is all the shipments of food I get in the mail to sample. Not because he also gets to try all the goodies – no – he gets excited when a big brown box appears on the front porch because he gets to play with what the food’s usually packed in.

Dry Ice.

That is pure joy on that man’s face. Pure, unadulterated joy. It certainly never gets boring around here! ;)

ps I cannot WAIT to show you what was inside that box!!!!

In other news, I made the most EPIC salad since my Roasted Vegetable Salad with Balsamic Glaze last Fall. Super Fruit Salad!

This baby was huge. HUGE! It was inspired by this Superfruit Berry Vinaigrette salad dressing Wish-Bone sent me to try!

The ingredient list is great and includes the juices of grape, cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, cranberry and blueberry. Nice.

I took some inspiration from the ingredients and loaded my salad with sweet & juicy fruits & berries! I started with a giant bowl of mixed greens, then topped them with strawberries,

I sprinkled the sky-high salad with almonds that I toasted real quick in a skillet with non-stick spray. Makes ALL the difference in its flavor!

Best Salad Ever!!

The dressing was slightly sweet – only slightly. Ben hates sweet food when it should be savory, and even he LOVED this. It was the perfect enhancement to all the sweet flavors in the salad. Refreshing & revitalizing!
