Salad preparation…the basil, onion and cucumber are from my garden.

Tonight DH found a cucumber. The first of the season from our garden. I had a head of lettuce, broccoli and tomatoes from Mrs. Weaver’s vegetable stand. Plus the herbs in our garden are thriving.

What better way to enjoy summer’s bounty than with a garden salad tossed in a classic French vinaigrette?

Tonight’s salad was outstanding. Really.
