I heart Donna Hay

So I love Donna Hay. I discovered her on a trip to the library as I was browsing through cookbooks and I came across one of hers. So I decided to check it out and see if the flavors matched up to the amazing pictures. (Everyone knows the pictures are what sell the cookbooks.)
I went out and bought it after a few successful meals (and got another book as a gift, thanks Liz). What I do is try a recipe and then I leave sticky notes in the books saying what I rated that particular recipe and how I would change/improve for next time.

Well last night I made dinner with one of my sisters and I took a change an tried a recipe I was sure would not match my taste buds. Well I am happy to have been proven wrong. It was a zucchini salad with mint and lemon dressing. It was so freshing and healthy and easy to make. Not to mention it looked so pretty. I decided it is going on my list of salad for dinner parties. People will think I am a culinary genius with the styling of the dish and the surprising flavors. Thanks Donna!
