june 6 weekly menu | spring table

Farm Fresh

arugula, collard greens, gourmet greens, green garlic, lettuce, radish, scallions

What’s for Dinner?

I’m declaring it “salad week” at my house, for obvious reasons. Certainly in honor of the continued sunshine, the season ahead, and my table toppling with greens in every size, shape, and color. I do lots of salad-for-supper in the summer, and I feel a bit out of practice. With the spring greens in full swing, and with this unheard of end-of-the-school-year-weather, it’s a perfect week to highlight all one can do with salad as the inspiration. Don’t worry…no one will go hungry. These are hearty salads to say the least, with lots of options for those seeking the full-meal-deal. We’ll ease into this salad craze with salad atop pizza, again, and a little celebration of national doughnut day.
