It is a well-known fact that salads are a refreshing popular dish during summer months, but serving an ordinary salad at your catering events can prove to be a disaster. This is why you should turn your standard salad into a catering masterpiece by using this Squash Blossom, Avocado and Butter Lettuce Recipe. A salad of this nature will enhance any type of catering event including picnics, receptions and any kind of party.
