I have some exciting news to share with you today along with my all time favorite salad.  We are expecting our fourth child.  I am due in just about 7 weeks!  All of my pregnancies have been so easy without any complications and this one has defiantly thrown us for a loop.  I have waited to announce because there have been a lot of complications early on with this pregnancy.

We know that this one is our last and so we wanted to make the gender reveal fun and special.  I was able to find out at 13 weeks what we were having.  My friend made a gender reveal cake.  We gathered friends and family over for a big party.  When we cut into the cake it was…..  PINK!!  We are adding another sweet little girl to our family.  We are especially ecstatic to have two older boys and then two younger girls.

The good news is that all of the complications early on in my pregnancy were gone at the 20 week ultrasound and I have had no problems since.  They were able to find a perfect and healthy little girl and we are so excited to have her join our family shortly.

I am sharing this salad with you today because all of my pregnancy cravings are rolled up inside.  This is hands down my all time favorite salad!  I knew that this was another girl because my pregnancy was exactly the same.  And I crave fruit like no other!  I can’t seem to get enough fruit and our fridge is always full of it.  And then I also crave avocado and pistachio nuts.  So it is no surprise that this is my favorite salad!

The best finishing touch to this perfect salad is the creamy lemon poppyseed dressing.  The dressing is a tried and true recipe here on the blog.  The lemon adds a little tanginess to this sweet dressing.  It is wonderful drizzled on top of this salad.

You are going to LOVE this salad just as much as I do.  You will quickly be able to see why it is my all time fave!
