Simple Fresh Side Salad
The other night Jasmine made a wonderful risotto and pan-seared chicken dinner. I’m always a fan of threes and of getting vegetables daily. Hence I threw together an easy side salad so that we could have some green color and fresh, tasty crunch on the plate.
I tossed together the following:
- Romaine, shredded
- Sprouted seeds (basic nameless ones that I bought at my green grocer)
- Green onion, cut into 1/4 in rings
- Carrot, shredded (from the garden)
- Newman’s Own Caesar dressing
Light Lunch Salad of Arugula and Vegetables
For a light weekend lunch, I pulled together a simple salad. I had a bunch of fresh carrots from my garden, so I thought that I wanted to highlight them in the salad. Looking in the fridge, I was inspired to create a salad that was sweet, bitter, fresh, and savory. All at the same time. It was light on the palette and satisfying to my taste buds. Toss the following together in whatever ratios float your boat:
- Arugula greens
- Fresh carrot, grated (from the garden)
- Red bell pepper, sliced
- Sun-dried tomatoes
- Dried cranberries
- Brianna’s New American dressing (balsamic vinaigrette)
Garden Harvest: Carrots
Just got home from pulling up some carrots from my garden! This is the first of my harvest and I’m super excited. They ended up being a little bit shorter than I expected, but their girth indicates that they were ready for harvest. After giving them a wash and cutting off the tops, I stored them in the fridge under water in a plastic container.
Our cat, Persephone, was very curious about these new visitors that I brought into the house!
