No Croutons Required - August Winner

Well, that was a close call! For the first time ever on No Croutons Required, we nearly had three winners, but at the last moment another vote came in. So now, I would like to announce the winner of this month's challenge as Dee from Ammalu's Kitchen with her beautifully presented and photographed Sweet Pepper, Feta and Veggie Salad. A worthy winner indeed, especially because she added some gorgeous feta to her salad.

However, I don't think it would be fair to end this post without a congratulations to the two dishes that came so close.

Coconut Rice and Roast Red Pepper Salad with Ginger Dressing - Mangocheeks

Roasted Pepper Salad with Filo & Goat's Cheese Croutons - Val

Congratulations you guys, your entries were awesome!

For next month's No Croutons Required, head over to Lisa's Kitchen. Lisa will announce the challenge at the start of September.
