That young man you see in the picture is my son. A 17 year old, at least 20 cm taller than me and high enough to eat comfortably on top of my head; a self-taught basketball player; deeply in love with 1960’s Chevy Impala cars; an absolute fan of the TV series “The Big Bang Theory”; a voracious devourer of pasta and pizza; and the author-creator-development manager of our marvelous vegetable garden. From the double-digging, to harvesting, from designing to planting, from weed pulling to natural bug attack prevention, he’s done it and all on his own.
Seeds are sprouting, zucchini flowers are blooming, tomatoes are growing and the lettuce is in its full burst of beauty. Big, crunchy leaves that give you pleasure of savoring a delicious, fresh lettuce from the garden. Flavor and texture that far exceeds the best grocery store produce. Lettuce is what we have been enjoying in abundance lately with a drizzle of olive oil, some balsamic vinegar and salt….but, in the long run, this can become boring. Here’s a flavorsome dressing that will give your salad a twist. Beware: you can get addicted to this!
The portions for this dressing may vary depending on preference and quantity of salad.
