Happy Valentine’s Day! Whatever your plans are today, I hope you treat yourself to something nice!! Tonight I plan on cooking a special dinner at home, and serving my favorite dessert that I worked on this afternoon (this is my treat to myself 😉). You will find out soon enough what it is! This mixed herb salad is tossed with freshly cut grapefruit slices, crumbled goat cheese, sliced almonds and dried cranberries. It goes very well with a red wine vinaigrette, pomegranate dressing, raspberry vinaigrette or other light dressing. I think it is the perfect salad for Valentine’s Day because of the beautiful pink color the grapefruit slices add to it!
Do you have any special plans for tonight? Some of you already told me you are staying in, like us, and enjoying a nice dinner at home or going out this weekend after the hype dies down. Last night we went to a comedy show in the city, which was a lot of fun! I am so happy tomorrow if Friday, and it is a long weekend for President’s Day! What are you doing for the 3-day weekend?
