Spring Garden Salad

Spring Garden Salad

Last week we were invited to a potluck celebration. We put together a salad with 25 ingredients that were local and organic. Most of them were growing in our community garden. The rest came from our local farmer’s market. The salad included:

Lettuce – 4 different varieties
Kale – 3 varieties
Swiss Chard
Collard Greens
Spinach
Mustard Greens
Tatsoi
Bok Choy
Beet Greens
Sweet Potato – Grated
Green Onion
Strawberries
English Peas
Snow Peas
Parsley
Rosemary
Oregano
Pansies
Nasturtiums
Violets
Mexican Sage

It was so much fun to do a walkabout of the garden and collect all the edibles that were ready for picking. We tossed it lightly with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The salad got rave reviews.

What is growing in your garden that you would add to this salad?
