Happy Grape Day!

 This new wine (to me) was purchased on Melissa's advice, and very good advice it was! The zin was getting a bit heavy, so a switch back to Pinot sounded nice, maybe since the days are getting warmer. This is just what the doctor ordered in a Pinot; smooth with lots of berry notes. It's kinda weird that a grape can give berry flavors! It's produced in (northern) Italy ~ Publix, $8.99. Recommend!

Dinner tonight was a fast salad, one of Lindsay's favorites:

I added cooked chicken to make it a "meal".

The Dressing:

1/4 cup lime juice
1 Tbls honey
1 finely chopped jalapeno, seeded
3 Tbls snipped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp salt

The Salad:

1 bag baby spinach
4-6 ears fresh corn, husked & cleaned, cut off cob
grape tomatoes
3/4 cup cucumber, seeded & chopped
1 cup chopped chicken (optional)
fresh black pepper

Whisk together lime juice and honey until well combined; stir in jalapeno, cilantro, salt.
Add to salad mixture and serve immediately.
Cool and fresh!

Got my travel docs today!!! 20 days (not 22; my counting was off!)
