Simple Summer Salads

So folks, who doesn’t love a delicious salad?

I have shared this before but I struggle with cooking and preparing meals in the summer. Something about standing over a hot stove really gets to me. I much rather have my husband fire up the BBQ and keep our sides super simple, but delicious.

What’s better than a simple green salad mix (fresh from a local farm – Rochon Gardens, Ottawa) mixed with dill (yes, DILL! AMAZING), fresh vegetables, a little quinoa and a homemade salad dressing.  Eating healthy doesn’t need to be difficult, expensive or hard. Next time you are scratching your head for a delicious side, keep it simple.

Trust me – you won’t be disappointed.

Last week I shared a snapshot of our 3rd Rochon Garden CSA basket. Starting next week, I will not only share a photo of the fresh ingredients we are given, but I will share a detailed post of how we use each one. Not only does this help to inspire your meal ideas, but it keeps me on track.
