If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen an over-the-top brunch I attended a while back at The Barn at Springhouse. A group of bloggers came together to plan the most extra brunch I’ve ever attended. We’re talking a full-out Pinterest set-up; pallet tables, mimosa bar, flower crown-making station and all.
Each blogger contributed a brunch dish or part of the beautiful set-up. And our spread was insane! So many yummy dishes. I made Watermelon & Feta Bites, which you can find the recipe for here and a Summer Brunch Salad filled with peaches, heirloom tomatoes, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella cheese and pine nuts. I figured we would have a lot of your traditional brunch dishes, so I wanted to bring a lighter option that showed off summer produce.
There were so many delicious options, I had to try them all! Sarah of Space, Place & Southern Grace made brunch sliders with avocado and bacon that I’m dying to recreate at home. Lisa of Candor and Rose made a mushroom tart that I have seriously craved ever since. Anna of Hartley Social made the cutest nutella pancake skewers. So much goodness! If you’re interested in my salad recipe, check it out below!
- 1 pound container power greens or mixed greens
- 3 peaches, sliced
- 1 pint heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 ball fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
- 4 slices prosciutto cut into two inch pieces
- 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp Dijon mustard
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Add all ingredients for salad to a bowl.
- Add all ingredients for dressing into a mason jar and shake well.
- When ready to serve, pour roughly 1/2 cup of vinaigrette over salad to taste.
Ugh, these photos are making me seriously miss this day! I’m so grateful for the relationships I’ve built with fellow Lexington bloggers and the opportunities that has granted me. Please go check out my cool friends and their blogs, which I’ve listed below!
