Even if you’re not growing your own food, this uplifting salad will make you feel garden-fresh. Bright, springtime colors prepared simply with a crisp, sunny vinaigrette, enhanced with just a few sprigs of mint. It’s a sheer delight to eat!
We didn’t want a heavy or rich dressing to overpower the gentle sweet, grassy flavors of the vegetables, so we made a vinaigrette that’s as light as the salad itself. Our Clementine Olive Oil, which boasts a wonderful citrus flavor, with just a splash of our clear, crisp White Balsamic, made for the perfect dressing.
This lovely salad makes us think of cucumber sandwiches, rose tea, and all things garden. We think you’ll love it as much as we do.
