First salad of the season with lettuce fresh from the garden. It was dee-lish-ous. It had tomatoes, red onion, orange pepper, cucumber and fresh chives. I layed it all out inside a little cold asparagus "log cabin". Lately I've been experimenting with making salad dressings consisting of olive oil and a mixture of herbs and sprices. Today I used kosher salt, fresh ground pepper & minced oregano. It was decent. To go with it, tuna with fresh dill, a little mayo and cut up cucumber.
This meal has gotten me excited for more meals fresh from the garden. Early next week the kale should be ready and the spinach is popping up fast. Yum!
My style of cooking is simple, wholesome and made with organic and local produce as often as possible. My favorite place to get food is from my own back yard. Although a beginner in the kitchen, I love to try new and different things.
You may notice my recipes are now almost always gluten free - I am in the process of being diagnosed with celiacs disease and am learning how to cook for myself.
