Live in the city? Think you can't eat local, support local farming and be extra cool just because you don't have 40 acres and a mule? Think again! Not only did I join a CSA (that's Community Supported Agriculture) Saturday morning, but I used my newly procured bounty to make this AMAZING salad. The only thing in this beauty that came further than 40 miles was the dressing. Does anyone have a local (to Maryland) source of olive oil?
We served this salad to 25 people Saturday night to rave reviews and few leftovers. It was so delicious! Am I imagining that it tasted better than Supermarket salad because I am so excited about eating local? Who knows? All I know is that I am hooked and can't wait to claim my fruit and veg next Saturday at the market.
