I fully subscribe to the notion that you eat with your eyes, and if this notion is even half true, then The Abode Kitchen's salad giverny will be the most delicious salad you've ever had. Pair it with a crisp glass of rose, your favourite lady friends and an outdoor patio and you've got yourself a pretty wonderful summery affair!
