Purple Fields of Salad Greens

Purple Fields of Salad Greens

I believe that when we make something simple (like a salad) extra special we are showing the person we are making it for how SPECIAL they are to us. This Mother's Day (or any day) treat mom to quite possibly the most beautiful, healthy and delicious purple hued salad in all the land. She'll immediately know how special you think she is. –Libbie Summers
