Making Salad from the Garden

Been pretty smoking hot, so I better get those greens out of the garden before they go bitter. Going to harvest a great lot of spinach, mesclun mix, and more.

Here is a great summer supper salad recipe, courtesy of all places Super Valu!

8 cups mesclun salad mix
1 cup sliced chopped sweet peppers
1/2 cups toasted walnut or pecan pieces
1/2 cup dired cranberries
1/2 cup soft goat cheese
Balsamic or red wine vinaigrette dressing.  Nasturtium blossoms if you have them.  And we do!!!

Place salad mix in large bowl.  Add peppes, walnuts and ried cranberries and toss. Crumble goat cheese on top and drizzle with vinaigrette, to taste. Tope with nasturtium blossom for garnish.

Harvesting rhubarb, sunflower and coleus leaves for lots of little plates, hopefully get them into the next kiln along with about 1 bazillion buttons.
