Our CSA started deliveries two weeks ago.
A bit meager to start with. . . it's been a tough spring all around . . . but oh-so-tasty! Just a hint, really, of what's to come as the season unfolds. And perfect for a salad! Which brings me to this week's Ten on Tuesday topic: Ten Things to Put in a Salad.
I love a good salad -- and I love to experiment. Here are my favorite ingredients (although. . . not all at once, mind you!):
- Greens -- Arugula, Spinach, Spring Greens, and Romaine Lettuce are my favorites
- Dried Michigan Cherries
- Grapes (cut in half)
- Toasted Nuts (especially pecans, but walnuts are also tasty)
- Feta Cheese
- Sunflower Seeds
- Mandarin Oranges
- Cherry Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Peppers, Radishes, and any other fresh garden produce!
Mmmmmm! I can hardly wait to pick up this week's CSA share this afternoon! I'm certain there will be a good salad involved.
And, in honor of today - our last day to celebrate RED in Project Spectrum - I want to share with you my favorite RED bloom of my garden . . . opening up just yesterday!
My Scarlet RED Clematis Rebecca! So lovely. . . and such a perfect way to end the month-long celebration of RED!
