Immature pea pods
All over a bed of mixed lettuce from our garden:
Adding broccoli, carrots, red peppers, cauliflower, raw sunflower seeds, feta, raisins, and italian dressing, we have a delicious and truly nutritious salad! Twenty-three ingredients do not quite equal the 35 ingredients used in the salads of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, but it’s a start. (Little by little, I will post about these wonderful weeds and how nutritious they are.)
Challenge: Go weed your garden and see what plants you already know are edible that you could put in tonight’s salad – even if it’s only one new food. Then post a comment!
