Strawberry Salad & Mademoiselle's Party Menu

I haven't posted any recipes in awhile and now that strawberries are in season again, this salad is a favorite at our house.

Ingredients:
Strawberries
Chopped pecans
Iceberg lettuce
Feta cheese, or mozzarella cheese, or blue cheese
Grilled chicken shredded or cut into strips
Poppy seed dressing (we love a local brand (Arnie's Fat Free Riviera Dressing) but I found one at allrecipes.com that is close)

While I'm talking about food, here's the menu for Mademoiselle's birthday party.

As you can see, we're offering a few Parisian dishes, along with a couple of options that we know everyone will enjoy. Thanks Aunt Jean & Aunt Marion for offering to make the crepes and to bring so many other yummy treats. Just wait until you see the idea behind my Mother's Eiffel Tower cake. Too cute.

PS. Chris has located a couple of felt berets and beatnick beards for my nephews. I didn't think our nephews would totally appreciate all the pink decorations at Emma's party, but when I suggested they could have facial hair, wear hats and get pretend airline tickets & passports they were thrilled. Emma and Josie modeled their cousin's berets this evening.

The birthday countdown continues!!
