Lettuce All Give Thanks-Eat the Seasons Friday

Lettuce All Give Thanks....

to the bounty of summer. The other day Marisa asked me to make a salad for dinner which gave me the opportunity to go out to the garden to forage. There is nothing better than a salad that was picked 15 minutes earlier. I was able to get some of our Green Oakleaf lettuce and our Forellenschuss Lettuce. We also had some sweet peas and strawberries to add to it. Here is a photo of the pickings.

I made sure to wash these as we had sprayed the vegetables with our homemade bug spray the week before. Then I mixed everything together and Marisa made a great salad dressing. She got the recipe from our sister-in-laws’ mother Irma. Here is the recipe.

Poppy Seed Salad Dressing

1/2 Cup Canola oil
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. Poppy seed
2 Tbsps. Worcestershire sauce

Mix well until the sugar is dissolved.

Put them all together and you have a great salad, fresh from the garden with ingredients that you can pronounce. No preservatives, no additives, just a whole lot of tasty.
What's in Season?
