Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Cover 4 plates with lettuce leaves. Divide turkey pieces between plates. Place mushrooms on top. Then add sliced strawberries.
Place all dressing ingredients in a blender. Process until smooth. Drizzle over salad and garnish with chopped chives.
*A time saving tip – use your egg slicer to cut the mushrooms and strawberries into uniform slices.
