Farmer's Market Greens and Asparagus

May 22, 2016

 

This morning the farmer's market had loads of greens and asparagus. 

Here is a recipe for a fantastic salad from Epicurious..The arugula from Bird Creek Farms is tender (almost like spinach) and bright compared to the store bought type I've been eating this winter. Use this salad for your next event served with grilled salmon or lemon pepper marinated tofu. Everything can be served room temperature so you can enjoy your company. The peppery arugula greens are a perfect match to the asparagus with this deep herbal dressing. I hope you like it, too.
