    A lot of times I do salads from the night before for breakfast. I’ve even been weird enough to have a sweet potato for breakfast drizzled with a little pure maple syrup YUM!

    That dressing seems interesting. Not sure what I think about it. Was it any better than your typical dressings? Lately I’ve been on the go and I use Ken’s Steak House Lite Northern Italian with Basil and Romano. It doesn’t taste lite. It’s my favorite bottled dressing!

    What is you favorite? Or the favorite of anyone reading this comment?
