We are now picking fresh lettuce from the garden which means lots of salads. I’m growing a romaine, a butter crunch, and several leaf varieties. I plant individual lettuce plants then pick the outer leaves as they are ready – I just do a few pickings from those that make a head then leave them along to do there thing.
One of the salads we love, but only make a time or two per season, is wilted lettuce using a dressing of bacon grease, olive oil, vinegar, and a beaten egg. The veggies were plated and the hot dressing was poured over it to wilt the lettuce. Then it was topped with hard-boiled egg wedges, bacon crumbles (I took the shot pre-bacon), a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, and grated parmesan.
Bev had bought a jug of Friday’s premixed mojitos but decided it needed something, so she muddled some fresh mint and added a few blueberries and raspberries. She said this was a definite improvement and it definitely made for a pretty drink.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
