Foodieforager’s Finds: Fresh Spring Salad

I love spring for so many reasons! One of the biggest is because of the fresh salads that can be created – most right from your own yard! The nice thing about a spring salad is that you do not need a large yard to create and enjoy! The bulk of this salad came from pots on my patio (spinach, lettuce, nasturtium, celery leaves), and the raspberries from vines along the back of my condo. The goat cheese came from Mackenzie Creamery here in Cleveland, Ohio, and the tomatoes (from southern Ohio) came from a local farmer’s market here in Cleveland. As for the vinaigrette, I had recently picked fresh basil and steeped in an organic white wine vinegar for a couple of days. I then strained, and sprinkled over the goodies with a dash of olive oil. I salted and peppered to taste. Ah….the flavors!! Fresh, sweet, tangy!! The best part? Healthy, flavorful, fresh, easy, and mostly local!

I have no ties to these guys, just love what they are doing! I consider this a great foodieforager find! Check it out… http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/gobble-green-brings-a-healthier-life-right-to-your-doorstep-1656804.htm

10) Donate food cans/items that are close to expiration.

9) Reuse plastic bags (if you have to use them at all!).

8) Save vegetable scraps (carrot tops, celery tops, ends of tomatoes) and make broth.

7) Buy quality, not quantity.

6) Eat wild fish vs. farm-raised fish.

5) Save all leftover bread, crackers, popcorn, etc. and feed to the birds!
