Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


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.
