The Quickest, Easiest Backyard Dinner

You just can't wrong with serving a "dump" salad from the backyard.  My brother-in-law is visiting from Florida and last evening's dinner was whatever I could muster up from the garden.  Here's what it ended up being and included:

Ruby Swiss Chard,baby beet Greens, perpetual spinach, red torpedo onion, arcadia broccoli, icicle radish, nardello pepper, fox cherry tomato, celery, and nantes carrot salad.  All from the garden, all freshly picked an hour before dinner. 

It's really that simple.... just walk around and pick what appeals to you for in your salad.  Add some kidney beans, chickpeas, or black beans and you got yourself a well-rounded, nutritional meal.

There's nothing better then going out the kitchen door to pick what you need for dinner!

I like to challenge myself to make a great dinner from whatever is on and available for harvest any given day - it's amazing what great eating is to be had by letting the garden determine the menu.
