Don’t Chou Fleur This Salad?!

Choufleur, one of my favorite French words. It’s so fun to say, that it makes you want to eat it. So I did. I bought an abundance of ingredients for a week’s worth of this gorgeous salad before the flu struck on Monday. I made one serving and the rest is still hanging out in my fridge. Womp, womp. Isn’t it just the prettiest? Colorful, crunchy, a little bit of creamy dressing. Nom nom. Nom nom nom.

I wish I was feeling better to want to eat this.
