    Cute post. I want to make the salad / dressing as well as the adorable beaded veggies! Thanks for the inspiration.


    I love the recipe and the graphs! I wonder though…what is an herb salad mix?

  • lynn marie pelletier

    Donna – I think that’s a pre-washed mix of salad with select herbs.

    Thanks for the inspiration for the beets and beads. I had no idea that’s what is in Green Goddess Dressing. Sounds great. Fusion Beads I think you are on to something with this recipe – ha ha
