It has been unintended blogging break, but I am back! Did I tell you the weather is getting warmer here? I had planted some seeds end of March in the pots on the porch. It turned cold after that and nothing sprouted. Soon, I forgot all about it. This week, when I was out on the porch, I saw tiny saplings in those pots. Now I don't remember what seeds were in which pots. Guess I just have to wait and watch:)
Along with gorgeous weather, the Farmers market's will be open in Buffalo soon. I love the fresh local ingredients we can use all through the summer.
Here is a simple spring salad with fresh greens and fresh raspberries that captures the spirit of the Farmers market.
1 cup baby spinach
1 cup red radish leaves
1 green apple
1/4 cup toasted walnuts and cashews
1/4 cup chopped carrots
2 tbspoon balsamic vinegar
1 tbspoon lemon juice
pinch of honey
pinch of olive oil
handful of raspberries
Chop the green apples in long slices and mix all the ingredients together.
For the dressing, mix all the ingredients together. You can either crush the raspberries in the dressing. I just let them soak the dressing and sprinkle them right before serving.
