Tasty Tidbits for Mother’s Day

Birds Nest Salad

I’m sharing a couple of my favorite Mom friendly recipes that are easy as pie to make

But first….

As mothers we do so much for everyone around us. That’s why this week I have been honoring many of my MOM travelers on my Facebook page.

It’s been so much fun telling a little bit about each MOM and highlighting their beautiful pictures from their ATOP trip.  For most, taking time away for all of the responsibilities is a rare gift they give to themselves.

Birds Next Salad

1/3 cup cherry tomatoes, cuts half

1/3 cup blueberries

1 cup Chow Mein noodles

2 ounces fresh chevre

1/2 teaspoon turmeric


1/4 cup champagne vinegar

1/4 cup olive oil

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 tablespoon honey

1 small garlic clove pressed

Pinch salt

Pinch pepper

Make goat cheese eggs by scooping 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese and roll it in the palm of your hand to create and oval shape.  Repeat the process until you have made 12 eggs.  Keep the goat cheese eggs in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  To prepare dressing, mix all ingredients in the bottom of salad bowl with a whisk until emulsified. Add greens to the bowl and toss well to coat.  Place greens in a mound on 4 salad plates. Place 1/4 cup of the noodles in the center of each lettuce mound to create the bird’s nest. Place the tomatoes around the edge of the salad and sprinkle blueberries to resemble flowers.  Arrange 3 eggs in each nest. Put turmeric in a fine mesh sieve and shake over all the eggs to give them speckles. Serve at once.
