A few days ago, we got together with some friends to celebrate a double birthday. It’s funny how in this group there are two sets of friends that share a birthday. Two of them on August 15th, and the second pair are Juancho and myself! It’s funny how after a few years of knowing each other, we realized that we shared a birthday on April 17th. It’s definitely a cool thing… I’ve never met someone who I shared a birthday with, much less another two people sharing a birthday in the same group of friends.
Since it was a small dinner, and Juancho shares a love for food the same as I do, we decided to cook that day. I prepared a Wild Rice with Mushrooms and Chicken (soon we will be sharing the recipe) and a Rhubarb Apple Cake (added Rhubarb replacing half the apples on my Grandma Lucy’s Apple Cake recipe), and Juancho made this delicious salad. He told me about it over the phone and after tasting it, I can say that he was absolutely right. The salad is tasty, not bland and goes perfect with the Wild Rice.
We hope you love it as much as we do, and most important… gather a few friends around the table, share delicious meals and create new memories.
