First dinner in the spring garden

Monday, April 24, 2006

We were out puttering in the garden yesterday afternoon and, when we got hungry, Michael offered to go back to the apartment and make a salad from whatever we could harvest. We picked one radish, a few leaves of spinach and Swish chard, and a bunch of our romaine lettuces -- Cimmaron and Little Gem. We cut fresh chives, parsley, and oregano. He whipped together a homemade vinaigrette.

Back at the garden, we enjoyed a wonderful salad for two -- our first meal from this spring's edibles, eaten alfresco and to the tune of the mockingbirds. It doesn't get any fresher than that!

Yes, it was delicious! We were worried that the greens would taste bitter, but they were delicious!
