FRESH GARDEN SALAD RECIPE

Now that we are living in Sunny California we can actually start growing our own fruits and veggies. We don’t have space for a garden, but we started container gardening and we are waiting in anticipation for our first little tomato to ripen!

 Below is a recipe for a salad I made last night that was fresh and perfect for summer!  You can throw pretty much any produce you have in it,  I’m looking forward to re-creating this salad with produce from our own garden:) I paired this salad up with Lemony Leeks with Chickpeas and Feta, a recipe I found from Whole Living, it was delicious! 

Ingredients:

2 large cucumbers with skin

3 cups of heirloom cherry or plum tomatoes

1 red bell pepper

1 orange bell pepper

1 large red onion

3 green onions

1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

¾ cup chopped mint

Salad Dressing:

¼ cup extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil

¼ cup lemon juice

Zest of 1 lemon

1 tsp. maple syrup

4-5 garlic cloves

Pinch of salt and black pepper

 Directions:

  1. Wash, prepare, and chop all veggies into small bite-sized pieces
  2. Make the dressing and pour over salad and let stand for 30 min at room temperature
  3. Before serving sprinkle with Za’atar and Enjoy!
