wonderful salad

This isn't exactly a recipe, but I didn't know where else to put it. What I am eating out of my garden currently is salad. Made a great one yesterday:

spinach, swiss chard, lots of different kinds of lettuce (from my salad mix seeds), broccoli, threw in some non-garden carrots for extra crunch. Then I added herbs, not as seasoning, but as salad ingredients--chopped up handfuls of herbs, parsley, lemon balm, basil, and then lighter on oregano and thyme. Topped it with a little chopped almonds and parmesan.

The handfuls of herbs made a wonderful flavorful salad. You would think it might be overpowering, but using fresh picked herbs like that it still was light and refreshing. Little bit of light raspberry vinaigrette... mmm.

Sounds good save me a bowl. :lol:I eat a salad almost every day from the garden. With a mixture of lettuce, radishes, onions, peas(soon to be replaced with beans), baby carrots, garlic scapes a small handful of mozzarella.
