It is no secret round here that I love a salad. Like seriously some of my favorite meals are salads. I made this recently and let me tell you the flavor combination was amazing. Something about the bitterness of the radicchio, the tartness of the apples, the saltiness of the olives and sweetness of the candied walnuts was just the perfect combination. Such a light and refreshing salad but filling at the same time!

I wanted to share these short booties that are now on sale and under $100. I wear mine often. They are so comfortable. They run TTS and come in 3 colors. I am wearing the tan nubuck. You can wear low ankle socks with these although sometimes I don't wear any socks!
