Beet Salad with Candied Walnuts and Feta Cheese

Pretty, isn't it? Well, it didn't taste very good. I can't figure out if it was the beets or the fact that I used fat-free feta cheese, but it just didn't work for me. It was a salad with romaine lettuce, red cabbage, candied walnuts, feta cheese, beets and an orange vinaigrette.

It's kind of fitting for this post, because I wanted to ramble a little about where I want this blog to go and if I even need to place rules on it. The problem is that when I came up with this idea, I thought that food blogs had to have original, delicious recipes, gorgeous photos and/or witty humor in every post. This leaves me being hyper-critical of what I have posted and my potential ideas. This is just not gonna fly if I want to post more than once or twice a month.

So I'm going to try and be more open and willing to post whatever the heck I want. There's no rules here, just the ones that I place on myself.

So there's my crappy salad. Deal with it.

Just kidding. If you're actually reading this, you rock.

hahahahhahahahaa! I wish I had time to read this previously, before you had told me about it, so I can be all like "I ROCK!!"...because really, I don't, since you had to tell me about the post last night! LOL! I love it though. Be honest, don't be all 'fancy-shmancy' because ya know what? IT'S NOT YOU. :) I look forward to future blogs of crappy food and non-crappy food alike!

That salad is actually really good with the addition(s) of either raspberry dressing or dried cranberries or both!
