It is SALAD TIME!




Ben and I are harvesting FRESH right now for each market: Green Leaf lettuce, 3 types of gorgeous Red Leaf Lettuce, Boston/Butterhead Lettuce, Romaine Lettuce, Baby Kale, Fresh Field Spinach & Radishes! I am sharing an awesome recipe! Strawberries will be a bit yet, BUT man, keep this recipe in mind!

Grape Spinach Greens Salad

For each person you are serving, per plate: arrange 1/2 cup of Spinach leaves & 1/2 cup of Dark Red Leaf Lettuce. Top with (as many as you desire for each) strawberries halved, green grapes halved, red grapes halved, & toasted sunflower seeds. Dressing: Mix together 2 tbs peanut or olive oil, 2 tbs balasmic vinegar, 1 tbs maple syrup (get yours from FORBES WILD FOODS! My buddy Seth from Dufferin!) , 1 tbs Poppy Seeds and a pinch of salt. Drizzle over each serving. Oh yes! ~Enjoy!
