We are coming out of winter hibernation and it won't be long before farmer's markets will be opening up across the country and we'll be seeing the early results of our own gardens coming to life (I already have green onions and cilantro happening on my deck!).

All that delicious fresh produce will be a great canvas to make some delicious salads, veggie sides and mains.  So why not "dress them up" with some great tasting dressing and herbs?

We've teamed up with Litehouse Foods to giveaway a full set of Litehouse Instantly Fresh Herbs and 12 bottles of Litehouse dressings of your choice.  Everything from the new OPA Pourables to the Green Garden Organics line of dressings! You'll have lots of choices to try.

Salads are a weekly staple in our house 🙂 One ingredient I always resort to cuz it’s always in the pantry would be dried cranberries. Good, simple and very tasty.


I consistently add cheese and fruit to my salads. I like pears and blue cheese. Feta and dry cranberries.

I could go on and on listing my favourite combos. 😉



My favourite add in to salads is spice roasted chick peas and lentils. They not only add the slight spiced up flavour but are amazingly crunchy and healthy too.
