Can I just tell you how much I love Portland!
First of all, it’s so so so green. Second, there really is amazing food here. And third (I can’t really do a “last,” the list is endless), it’s such a great location to do lots of outdoor things.
On Saturday, we went on a family hike to Pittock Mansion from Lower Macleay Park Trailhead. It’s a 5 mile round trip and the kids did great. Our 2-year-old did most of it in the backpack, but did enjoy some spurts of running. He was only scary on the switch-backs coming down the trail. I think I saved him from going over the edge at least twice! But it was perfect weather and a great trail.
Speaking of great. Please make this salad. It’s probably the easiest salad you’ll ever make.
It only has 4 main ingredients, topped with salt and pepper. It’s super fresh with the hint of lemon and would be perfect for a picnic on the go. Yea for summer!
Thanks to Judy J. for this idea! She says this is the ingredient combo she’s made for years and everyone always loves it.
