Garden Bowl Salad Creations #TasteCreations

My salad bowl is quickly coming to a halt as the temperatures have been climbing upwards steadily since mid May.  Just in time to share with you one of my favorite creations for our Taste Creations Salad Month!

Growing your own lettuce is a breeze, especially if you use a large flower pot!  The rabbits and deer don't seem to notice the yummy goods in the flower pot and I always get a fantastic crop!  I tend to overplant but that helps keep the soil moist when the sun is bright and shining.

Garden Lettuce Salad

Garden Lettuce Salad

8-10 full sized lettuce leaves
1 small kiwi, sliced
1 T fresh pomegranate seeds
1/4 c fresh orange sections
1/4 c bacon, fried and chopped
1/4 c chopped walnuts

Wash lettuce leaves and pat dry.  Arrange on a plate as the base.  Add all other toppings sprinkled over the leaves of lettuce.

Serve with homemade balsamic vinaigrette.

When you see how easy this is to make, you'll never want to buy store bought dressings again!

Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pressed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or more, to taste
Pour olive oil in a bowl.  Drizzle in vinegar and whisk until fully incorporated.  Add in other ingredients and whisk to mix.  Keeps up to two weeks in a refrigerator.

Please visit our other hostesses for fantastic salads and dressings, too!  You can follow them on social media and your inbox will love you!
