A Fresh Summer Salad…

  1. Hi! Can you give us details on your Restoration Hardware dining table? What collection? How to protect it from stains? Thanks! :)

  2. Yummy salad idea! And your kitchen is so lovely! I love the white cabinets and marble counter tops. Can you do a kitchen tour sometime and share more pics of your lovely kitchen?

  3. Thanks for another great recipe! I love salads and it’s nice to find new varieties. Also, I am loving that dress!! Perfect example of style meets comfort. Beautiful!

  4. LOVE the dining table – I keep seeing it in your posts and would love to know where it’s from. Could you kindly direct me?

  5. Hello Rachel,
    I have to say that you are a very beautiful person and you have exquisite taste. One question, which Jo Malone perfume do you use?

  6. If you have any questions you should go to foodnetwork.com where the recipe came from. It’s not likely you are going to post this comment so in case you read this Rachel, plagiarism is a real thing. You shouldn’t post things and not give credit to those whose creativity and ideas it really is.

Hello Gorgeous,

You are now being redirected to Nordstrom…
