Making a mountain from a mole hill; A garden salad.
It is summer and we had yet eaten a decent summer salad from our own garden. Or at all? I just can't get myself to buy lettuce or the lettuce mixes anymore, they always disappoint. When one has had a taste of the good freshy-fresh stuff from the garden, it's hard to go back to anything that isn't fresh picked. I decided to make a fun project out of creating a salad from anything edible in our yard. I thought it would be interesting seeing as I never got around to planting actual lettuce. We ended up with a really awesome lettuceless salad.
