The lettuce, spinach, onions, and radishes are producing well.
The peas are looking really good this year.
You might remember back in January, I canned cuties. If it were January now and they were that cheap, I'd buy cases and can more.
Because they are excellent in this salad. Sure you can use mandarins too, but I like getting them out of my own cabinet.
Here's the recipe oddly enough called: Lettuce and Mandarin Salad
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds
2/3 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon salt.
Mix in one vintage green ball pint jar! (JK, any will do)
Use garden leaf lettuce, spinach too if you want, we like a variety.
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 red onion chopped (we use green onions out of the garden)
1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
*Note the dressing makes enough for 3 or 4 salads.
Well for dinner we had the above salad and really fresh wild turkey! The blacksmith deboned it and cut it into strips. We marinate it an hour or two in Italian salad dressing and cider vinegar. Shortly before deep frying it, drain it well, then salt and pepper it. Flour it, let it set about 10 minutes, add more flour at the end if it's all soaked up. Deep fry and yum, yum!
P.S. Now that the DIL gave me a quick lesson on my new camera, maybe my next pictures won't be grainy!
