OK, so this is a cheater post, I'm so busy with summer and Laura's definitely busy with school exams (hope they went well!!) that we're lackluster with the posts! So today's food post is just a reminder that summer's *almost* over and that eating salads with vegetables from (your) garden or the market or even cheap from the store (because they're probably more local during August than at any other time of the month!) is the way to go. In March when you're eating frozen veggies from a bag (carrots and peas!) you'll remember these lovely summer salads and how great they made your day.
The first salad is just green lettuce, shredded carrot, some parsley, and a tomato from the farm up the road. The second salad is three tomatoes, chopped, three cloves of garlic, minced, some basil, and olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a sprinkle of salt. The third is one I used a recipe for, and it was a lot of work, but totally worth it.
