As you saw from my last post i’ve been working away in our little veggie/herb garden and on Monday I was able to harvest enough to make a huge salad for both myself and the man friend for dinner.
I used a bunch of fruit and veggies I got from the farmers market to make the most delicious summer salad
Organic cherry tomatoes
Organic farmers market purple carrots (so fun!)
Organic farmers market strawberries
Organic farmers market apples
Greens from the garden
Vinaigrette: I just blended up dijon, balsamic vinegar and avocado oil- it was perfect!
Throw on some grilled chicken, grilled prawns, grilled steak or even beans with some fluffy quinoa and you’re good to go- a well balanced healthy and cheap (thank you home grown veg) dinner for two.
In the future I will definitely throw in some other local veggies and herbs as well as some yummy local goat cheese! so good.
I am really going to try and utilize home grown food whenever possible this summer- I dub this summer the summer of epic salads 🙂 I’m feeling so motivated to keep my garden nice and healthy 🙂
That’s all- thanks for reading.
