Summer Salad

Summer Salad

This salad was super easy to make.  Simple wash and tear lettuce.  Use a peeler to add carrot.  You don’t need to use much!  Pick your dressing of choice, ours was a tangy Caesar.  Colorful plate required.

All of the vegetable used in Summer Soup & Salad were from Mountain View Farm, our CSA farm share in Easthampton.

  1. I made this soup for my family yesterday and everyone loved it. Today we had it for lunch and it was even better as the flavors had time to sit. It’s a great combination of sweet and a bit tangy and tastes totally fresh and satisfying!
