So tomorrow is Mother’s Day…. a day in which everyone is “supposed” to be nice to their mother with gifts, flowers, and extra special treatment.
Phooey, I say.
My mother (wise woman that she is) taught us that EVERY day is Mother’s Day. “Don’t be nice to me one day a year because Hallmark says you should be. Be nice to me ALL year”.
Truer words were never spoken.
With that sentiment in mind, I made her favorite salad a few weeks ago when she and my dad came over for dinner. The original idea came from T-Bones restaurant here in Las Vegas – they serve this simple yet outstanding salad composed of greens, chopped tomato, hearts of palm and avocado – and dress it with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and cracked black pepper.
