Another trip to my local Farmers Market and this time we went right when the market opened. Since it wasn’t too crowded, Lucie (one of my Greyhounds) tagged along. Lucie LOVES the Farmers Market – meeting new people and getting lots of pets. Buddy (my other hound) isn’t much for shopping, instead preferring to stay in the park and lounge on the grass, so after my purchases were made, we picked up Buddy and went to relax in the park to enjoy the sunny day:
My purchases at the a Farmers Market:
1). Yukon gold potatoes; I plan to roast them with some fresh garlic.
2). Kale – 2 kinds – because I can never get enough kale.
3). A 3 pack of berries with strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – yum!
For dinner I made a very simple, but tasty salad as a starter with some of the goods from the Farmers Market:
Farmers Market Salad: Kale – Blueberry – Almond – Goat Cheese
Ingredients / Nutrition Information:
-Wash and chop the kale
-Spritz on the olive oil and sprinkle a pinch of salt (optional) and massage evenly onto the kale
-Top with blueberries, almonds and goat cheese
-Any kind of berry that is in season at your local farmers market works great
-Swap almonds for walnuts or hazelnuts
-Try feta cheese instead of goat cheese
Question for you: Do you have a favorite berry?
