A Few Guests, A Few Salads

A few days in a row with guests and little time = salads.
Times like these I realize just how much I love summer. Quick meals. Fresh. Tasty.

The little things.
Like carrots to snack on.

Raspberries to add to our drinks.

Colorful zucchini ribbons and herbs.

But mostly, the unexpected guests. The sweet company. The laughs we share. Cheers to summer.

ps. This week will be about figs. Mangoes are so last week...

Figs and Prosciutto Salad

The important here is quality ingredients...

Lettuce mix (we had Rochon Farm)
Balsamic (aged yummy yummy yummy)
Olive oil (again, good quality. Very delicate)
Salt and pepper
Minced garlic

Zucchini Ribbon Salad

3 courgettes
1 clove garlic, minced
5 large leaves basil
Flat leaf parsley
2 Tbsp Balkan style yoghurt
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt and Pepper
