From email announcement:
Back in the 90s my favorite meal was based on the existance of one salad dressing: Girard’s Pesto Dressing. I started with a large pile of spring mixed greens or romaine lettuce and baby spinach leaves. A large spoonful of warm basmati rice is laid on top, then toasted pine nuts, small chunks or shavings of havarti cheese with dill. The pesto dressing was poured over and a final sprinkle of black pepper. This came to an end when Girard’s discontinued their Pesto Dressing. All you smartie-pants who know how simple it is to make your own salad dressings can just stop smirking. I was in mourning and thought nothing would ever be the same again.
Then came Farmers Markets! So, I think late summer salads should be high on your list this week. Ingredients abound. And savory sautees await. And grilled whatsoevers…
Vendors who will be here this week that were not last week: Thinking of You Creations, St. Andrew’s Church, Wild Heaven Goat Soaps, Petal Palate, Bernie’s Baked Goods, Sustenance…
