Accidental Goodness – Recipe: Roast Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing

I love it when something great happens, especially when it is by total accident.

Like…getting a first year teacher who turns out to be nothing short of amazing.

Or…finding out at 35 weeks pregnant with #3 that a house is available right next door to your sister.  And, moving in at 38 weeks….so that the new baby girl is brought home to the new home just one short week later.

And….finding Mr. Wonderful the first day of a new job….just as giving up dating had seemed like a viable option.

Of course…it is great when a kitchen/cooking accident is met with smiles of approval…instead of a giant mess. 🙂  I will be honest…I have had both.

Recipe: Roast Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing



Chop lettuce, and add it to a bowl.  Top with olives, goat cheese, corn, and roast.  Add the salad dressing, toss, and top with the tortilla strips.

I put this salad together the other night with no intentions of actually posting it.  But, when I sat down to eat it and saw how pretty it was, I just had to take a picture.  Then, I tasted it, and I knew that I had to share it.  Enjoy…and remember…sometimes the best things in life happen by total accident.
