Now that summer is in full swing, it hasn’t been easier to be inspired. Our garden is flourishing and the raspberries are out; as a culinarian I am literally in nirvana!
To make this simple salad, I added the ingredients listed below. If you don’t have a garden, try your local farmers market! This is peak season for New England growers and it is good to support them.
Speckle & Green Lettuce (the smaller leaves are more tender and mild)
Fresh Coriander (seeds, flowers, & fronds)
Thai Basil (flowers & leaves)
Cucumber (thinly sliced)
1 tsp Raw Honey
1.5 tsp Dijon Mustard
Basil Leaves (about a handful)
3 Tbs Apple Vinegar
1/3 c Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper
-Blend dressing ingredients until pureed. Rinse & dry all vegetables and plate neatly. Top with dressing. Garnish with basil & cilantro flowers.
