Joining Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet for another Flashback Friday!
Flashing back to a really great salad I had made a while back, one of the last posts of my original blog, There's No Thyme to Cook. I deleted that blog because of one little misclick. Is that a word? It is now. and it's out there in Blog Limboland, can't get it back, can't use the name, so now There's Always Thyme to Cook and this salad is so worth repeating!
