I was able to pick lettuce tonight for our dinner salad. This is the first lettuce of the year. What a treat.
You can see I had more than enough for a large salad. It is so rewarding to pick your veggies from your own yard. I don't have any ripe tomatoes yet though and the cucumbers are still just small vines. Soon though, the whole salad will be from the garden.
I almost always make my own dressing. Really a vinaigrette. I like to control the sodium and other ingredients. It is so simple and even my kids prefer homemade to bottled.
I don't measure. It is just splashes and dashes of olive oil, some type of vinegar like red wine, rice wine or apple cider, sea salt, Mrs. Dash and Italian seasonings.
