Today, I enjoyed a salad. A lovely salad from Panera called Strawberry Poppyseed Chicken Salad. Oh is that the sound of angels singing that I hear? Yes, it must be. It's that heavenly!
Have you had this salad? Are you in love? Oh my heck, I'm addicted I tell you. So much so that I can't stop thinking about it and it's been some 10 hours since I ate it. Really. Thinking. About salad.
I discovered this salad a few years ago. It is a seasonal item on Panera's menu, so you can only get it in the summertime. Oh the torture! Those bright red, juicy strawberries, those gorgeous, plump blueberries, the vibrant mandarin oranges, the succulent pineapple, the crisp romaine lettuce, the crunchy pecans and that thinly sliced seasoned chicken. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.
I googled this salad because I wanted to include a beautiful picture of it for all my blog friends. Let me tell you, I cannot believe the amount of posts that popped up for it. (I guess I'm not the only one addicted.) I refused to read anything that was labeled with nutritional information though. You see, I'm smart like that. Why ruin a good thing?
Anyway, since I was unable to secure a mouth-watering photo for you, I decided that I will hold this post until I go to Panera again. Then I will delay my gratification and take a picture of it before I devour it. Sounds like a plan, doesn't it? Maybe I'll get there really soon too.
(Ok so it wasn't tomorrow. Can you believe I had to wait 2 days to enjoy the delectableness once again?)
