When you get tired of the same old salad…try this spin!
Below is the recipe for the salad in the picture, that I made for dinner tonight, with hardly any cleanup involved. First I headed to the grocery store to pick up some salad fixins,’ and what I couldn’t find there, I gleaned from the local health food store. I use what I can find. Every salad I make is a little bit different than the last based on what is available at the store, and what I’m in the mood for. I can’t wait for the farmer’s market to open for the summer. The fresher the ingredients, the better the taste, and the healthier for my body (and the farmer’s market veggies are way cheaper than the grocery store!). I can usually find 1-3 “organic” farms at the market. They may not be certified, but they don’t spray, and they utilize sustainable organic practices which puts back into the soil the nutrients the plants have taken. Non-GMO and organically-grown produce contains up to 100-fold more vitamins and minerals than conventionally grown produce! The fennel will be more flavorful from the farmer’s market (tastes like licorice – yum!)
