Garden Salad Recipe - the first - fresh, fresh, green salad recipe of the season. Fresh cut from the garden - how much better can it get?
If you don't have a vegetable garden - check out your local Farmer's Markets for fresh garden produce to make this simple and easy recipe.
I know that not everyone has a vegetable garden but we are lucky that we can purchase relatively fresh produce year-round in our local grocery stores. Of course when produce is in season and we can purchase local fresh produce - that is the best time for making green salad recipes. Somehow the winter tomatoes and cucumbers just don't have the same taste as local fresh ones. However, we shouldn't complain - at least they are available to us all year. Therefore we can make simple garden salads all year round!!
