    Thanks for including my Red, White and Blue Cheese Salad. Those are mozzarella balls (not feta), but what the heck, it might be great with feta, too! I say experiment!

    Oh, Meg! This is just such a gorgeous, inspiration-filled post! We always try to eat lots of fruit, all year round, but it’s especially easy and extra-wonderful in the summer, when so many lovely fruits are inexpensive and readily available. I’m just loving all the wonderful ideas here and I’m definitely pinning this to share! And thanks bunches for including our Hearty Fruit and Nut Salad – we’re so delighted to be part of such a beautiful list!
