salads from the garden

one of the things we love about our new house is the large, sunny front yard.
the perfect spot for a vegetable garden!
mark is a natural born farmer, and we all profit from his green thumb.

we planted mid-spring, and have already begun harvesting:
basil, parsley, onions, radishes, swiss chard, lettuce, yellow squash, sweet peas, cucumbers, beans, oregano, and mint.

we've been having salads from the garden most everyday, and often as the main course.
i figure if i can come up with enough different ways to eat salad,
i'll never get tired of it.

the works:: greens, carrots, onions, any other veges you have, boiled eggs, avocado, sunflower seeds, bacon crumbs, and homemade croutons.

taco salad:: greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, grated cheese, taco seasoned ground beef, pinto beans, chips, salsa.

tuna salad:: greens, onions, kalamata olives, tomatoes, canned tuna, lemon, olive oil.

chinese chicken:: greens, onions, carrots, cucumbers, peanuts, shredded chicken, raw ramen noodles, peanut dressing.


  1. I would be in HEAVEN at your house. I could LIVE on salads :)

  2. I'm jealous. We had a cold, wet spring and our garden is just starting to get going. Nothing better than food from the garden!


  3. Yum! Your garden looks gorgeous. Ours? not so much. The late rain and cool weather has done a number on it! :(
