Blooming Salad~And Jacques' Dressing~
Boston Bibb Hydroponic..Love that lettuce now..Buttery soft..sparkling..and beautiful to look at.
My Borage is finally in bloom and I love adding it to salads..etc..the nasturtiums are having a slow start..much rain..not much sun..but it is a very good garden year here.Cannot complain..I know the rain is getting many a little itchy..
But I don't mind it so much..
Still many pansies left and lots of herbs..
The salad dressing that is our go to.. is Jacques'... takes 2 minutes..
We never buy bottled always like trying new recipes..but this one just stays as the go to one..
In his words..
1/3 cup EVOO
1/3 of 1/3 of a cup good balsamic vinegar
1 tsp sugar
salt,pepper and a pinch of Herbes De Provence..
That quantity is more than enough for the big bowl above..
I like to add toasted pine nuts too.
Oh salads are so much prettier in the summertime..
