Food Anatomy: Summer Salad with Fruits

July 3, 2013

Summer Sald with Fruits

My friend Laura asked me to bring “beer, and interesting salad, and patriotic thoughts” to her Canada Day gathering on Monday. Alas, only one of the three made it to her place, but the salad was delicious!

Grilled LemonThe salad is a collection of items from our CSA box, local produce from the market, and a few non-local add-ons (pecans and lemons) just because they’re delicious! I loved the combination of savoury and sweet items, and there are some great possible substitutions along these same lines (nectarines, blueberries, pea shoots, etc.). It was perfect as a side dish to veggie burgers, but would also be an amazing summer lunch all by itself.

I have a stovetop grilling pan, which makes the lemons really easy to do up. Laura has an enviable cast iron grill, but mine is the $14.99 Ikea version, which works well enough for now, and is absolutely worth the price. I use it all the time – those grill lines are just so beautiful!
