Salad Ideas

In season salad Once you start eating in season, you'll quickly realize that the tomato, lettuce, and cucumber salad is a farce --- lettuce is best in spring, fall, and winter when tomatoes and cucumbers are only far-off memories.  But what else can you put in a lettuce salad?  Here are some ideas:

  • grated carrots
  • Egyptian onion tops
  • roasted almonds
  • sliced strawberries (or softened strawberry jam in winter)
  • snow or sugar snap peas
  • chopped oranges
  • dried fruits or vegetables - cranberries, raisins, and tomatoes are all good choices (although perhaps not together)

What are your favorite in-season salads?
