Summer Salads: Simple Green Salad

On to the next salad we love.  Every time I eat this salad, I am whisked away, back to my childhood.
Memories of warm summers, fresh greens, gardens and family.

And I have also since discovered that this recipe was one of my Grandpa’s favourites.
Making it even more special.

I hope you enjoy it!

Simple Green Salad with Homemade Mayo Dressing {A Pretty Life}

So, I was asking my Mom about the exact recipe for this dressing, since I have always just made it to-taste, and I guess that is the recipe.  To taste.  Sometimes those recipes from memory truly are the best ones.  But I will try to make it a little more clear for you than that!  😉
