Simple, but thoughtful vegetable salads are one of my favorite things to both make and eat. I love pairing two or three vegetables together with a simple dressing that lets the produce shine. I especially like taking an ethnic influence to marry the flavors, like I did in this Japanese combination.
I make chopped salads just about everyday. They are a great way to enjoy vegetables. I love leafy green salads, but sometimes I would rather skip the greens and focus on other veggies.
March was a busy month! It’s time for another update before we get too far into April. I stayed busy between working at the greenhouse, private dining gigs, and other fun stuff I’ll discuss more below. I haven’t had as much time to post recipes as I would have liked over March, but such is life. And I’ve had issues with my photo library the past few weeks, so I haven’t posted anything in a while. Hopefully, I’m back on track now.
The first day of Spring was a few weeks ago. In Santa Fe, we are experiencing the usual Spring weather – windy sunny afternoons and chilly mornings / evenings, with the occasional snowstorm! It was cold and cloudy a few mornings ago and this turned into a “wintry mix” of rain and snow. I’m ready for a true spring.
In contrast, a week ago the fruit trees are blossoming. Cholula and I went on a jog through my neighborhood. There were apricot, peach, and cherry trees in full bloom. Last year we had a bad freeze in January and a bad spring for blossoms. I’m hoping for a good fruit season in spite of the snow.
