Soups, Salads & Cheese

Three Cheese Soup with Salad

Three Cheese Soup with Salad by EraPhernaliaVintage

If some evil alien came from space and said I’d have to eat from only three categories of food for the rest of my life, these would be my choices: Soups, Salads and Cheese.

The beauty is these three things cover just about everything else–from savory to sweet. And with soup, there’s enough liquid to keep you from getting dehydrated.

All silliness aside, in this category, we’re going to bring you all kinds of soups and salads. We added cheese here, because it’s so darned good, and deserved a mention.

There’s something really satisfying about these foods, and they can be enjoyed all year long in their various incarnations–so please do.
