I picked more lettuce this morning, and washed all of it and prepared it with my salad spinner, then packed it in my largest plastic container. There’s probably 3 lbs of lettuce and spinach all ready to be thrown in a bowl and eaten. I line the bowl with a clean (kitchen use only) cotton men’s hankie, which absorbs the moisture from the washed leaves so they stay crisp, not slimy. I love my convenience foods!
Dan and I are eating a lot of salads these days. I read with interest Daphne’s post about garlic scape salad dressing, and thought I need to shake things up and try some new salad dressings. So tell me, what are your favorite salad dressings? What do you like to put in your salads?
One of my favorites is Lemon Parmesan Dressing, especially with an arugula salad. Wow. I drool all winter thinking about it. I have several dressings listed in my recipe blog, Yankee Pantry, which can be accessed through the categories drop down menu. Please share your favorites with me!
I awoke this morning thinking about another terrific summer salad which mixes savory and sweet, fruit and greens, with Maple-Lime dressing and blue cheese. My friend Nikki taught me this recipe years ago, and I think it will be on the menu for tonight.
