“sweet, sweet burn of sun and summer wind, and you my friend, my new fun thing, my summer fling.”
– k.d. lang
Nothing embodies the essence of summer like salad. Sure, many of us consume salad year round – but the feeling that you get from eating fresh baby greens and lettuces that have just popped their heads out of the dirt is like no other. In summer we have the opportunity to look at our lives and our plates with fresh eyes- summer is the opportunity to let the garden be your guide and get creative!
We wouldn’t be Poppy and Seed without offering up a delicious Poppy Seed Dressing. And if you didn’t know- poppy seeds are actually an excellent source of vitamins and minerals- namely zinc, calcium and iron.
