mother's day recipes

With Mother’s Day around the corner we thought it would be a great idea to post a light and healthy brunch recipe. We also thought that it should be as cute as it is easy to make. Take those tea cups and saucers you have laying around (it doesn’t matter if they don’t match) and use them to serve the salad at your next brunch. This one here is easy to make. We took spring greens mix and tossed them with pecans, pear chunks, and feta cheese. And because they’re in tea cups, we made a delicious salad dressing that’s infused with mint tea!

You can store the dressing in the fridge until ready to toss or toss it into a salad and serve right away.

You can fill the cups with any type of salad you like. Green salad, macaroni or even potato salad. It’s a great way to showcase those teacups that are sitting in your cupboard.
