We haven’t done one of these in a while, Reader, but it’s high time we design a lunch again! 
Inspired by Lauren Willhite’s blog, Color Collective, where she pulls color schemes from high fashion—which…yes, is probably a lot cooler…but we like food—we pull this lovely scheme from the salad we scarfed up the other day. It struck us as a bright, lively palette, that just beckons to not-so-far-off days of warmer weather.
Oh, and it tasted awesome. Thank you for asking. Said scenic salad features some really tasty watercress from Long Island’s Satur Farms, sliced farmers’ market beets, cut green beans, shelled sunflower seeds, sliced carrots, and a nice homemade curried mustard vinaigrette.

Eat that art!
