SPRING HAS SPRUNG WITH A SEASONAL DELIGHT


Spring and Summer are not my favorite times of the year. But with all the snow we had this winter... I found myself longing for them to come. One of the things I do like about these two seasons is the food. Fresh fruit suddenly becomes more affordable. And, you can get it everywhere. One of my favorite places... makes a great fruit plate with chicken or tuna salad. I went there the other day and ordered it to usher in the season. All the different flavors on the plate made SPRING come alive. My only complaint is... the scoop of chicken salad is too small. It is homemade... and really good, so it always leaves me... wishing for more. Otherwise, it's delicious. Do you have a favorite dish you like to eat in the spring or summer?

Looks delicious! I agree, sometimes the best things are the smallest on the plate! I like to eat ice cream in the summer on a hot day!

That plate looks so good. I wish we had a place like that around here.

I like the chicken salad too but around here it isn't that good anymore. Wonder how much they would charge you for an extra scoop.

After Easter I always enjoy egg salad made with colored Easter eggs. For some reason it tastes better. I do love that fresh fruit is becoming more readily available too. I eat more salads and fruit in the summertime than any other time of year. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

Yum! looks delish!

The plate looks fantastic, but I agree with you - there should be more chicken salad.

I always love fresh fruits and salads during the summer. Unfortunately, in this lame part of west Texas there isn't always a wide variety available.

Not necessarily a plate, but I do love the fruits and veggies Spring brings in.
The plate is very appetizing. GOOD stuff.

Looks scrumptious! I am with you in that Spring and Summer are not my favourite seasons. It is nice to see some Spring blooming in parts, although here in Montreal it will be a bit more time before we see it. I really love iced tea, lemonade and watermelon in the summer!

That presentation is really pretty; and yes, they're awfully stingy with the chicken salad. Make mine a double!

I'm not particularly fond of fruit - but, I passed a jar of pink grapefruit the other day that looked refreshing. Down here, it's already becoming a challenge to keep cool and hydrated.

That looks yummy. I love fresh fruit in season too.

That plate looks awesome! I love chicken salad. We have a store called Fresh Market that makes THE best chicken salad and pimento cheese. Kinda pricey, but well worth it for a treat.

This plate looks so good, Taryterre, and I love fresh fruit in the summer. Strawberries, cherries, peaches, and plums are a few of my favorites. Yes, the chicken salad does look like a small portion, especially when it tastes so good.

I just like to eat but I do like homemade chicken salad. The fruit looks yummy.

I love all of the fresh summer veggies- okra, corn on the cob, anything fresh for a salad..but my favorites are the fresh picked fruits- especially cantaloupe...slice it in half, seed it and add a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream...YUM.
