For me, the perfect meal is a huge bed of green with a fresh & vibrant dressing… piled high with lots of good stuff.

Recipe from Minimalist Baker – with just a few tweaks.
Inspired by The Daily Garnish.
I have only had “traditional” split pea soup once. I was totally unimpressed by the flavor profiles of what I had so I never felt a desire to re-create. When Jamie shared this was one of his favorite soups lets just say I was less than thrilled.
