Tropical Island Salad
One of my favourite places I’ve visited is St. Pete’s beach. We have gone there a few times and every time we leave we are dying to go back. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk for miles. In fact, one of our favourite restaurants, The Conch Republic is just a minute drive from where we stay, so last time we were there we walked along the beach back to our condo. It was so beautiful. The night sky, the ocean air, the sand in my toes. I just love it there.

On our way back there was a guy sitting on the shore with a fishing line in the water. We were curious as to what he was fishing for this late at night and being from way up north we were not familiar with what fish he could be trying to catch. So we asked him. He answers with “shark”.

Seriously? I never knew you could fish for shark along the shore! Not sure if I’m wanting to go in the water there again.

Anyhow, The Conch has an amazing Tropical Island Salad. I have the same thing every time we go there (I’m not a seafood fan, which is funny because this restaurant has a ton of it). So I decided to copycat the salad and make it at home (I copied their coconut chicken too but that recipe will be coming soon). This salad is so good. It takes me right back to our vacation. I never realized how easy honey mustard dressing is to make. I guess I never really thought about it. But, once you try this recipe you will never buy a bottle of it again.Tropical Island Salad
