Winter Salad

These little field of greens has been feeding us salad for months!

A wonderful thing about growing your own lettuce is that it is fresh as it can possibly be and there is no waste. Enough lettuce is cut and washed for our salad, then wrapped in a dry towel and refrigerated for 30 minutes or so. Combined last night with slivered fresh fennel, red onion and a simple vinaigrette, it made a wonderful addition to our dinner. 

Simple Vinaigrette

1 small clove of garlic, minced

1 sprig fresh thyme - chopped

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 TBL Spanish Sherry vinegar

2 1/2 TBL Extra Virgin Olive oil

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/4 tsp Kosher salt. 

I mix this in a small jelly jar, put the lid on and shake it up and serve. Yum!
