Farmer's Market Dinner

Savory Warm Salad

  • Kale and Spinach leaves
  • Peppers of your preference (mine being orange)
  • Sweet onion
  • Goat cheese
  • Walnuts or Pecans
  • Squash
  • Mushrooms
  • Seasonings/dressing ( red wine vinaigrette and pepper)
    The Farmer’s Market is coming to the end of its season so I thought I could create a healthy salad from the ingredients that I bought. If you have never been to a farmer’s market, I recommend it; not only is your food fresh, you get to actually talk to the people who made it. It really connects us to our food, it’s a blast, and there's so many samples. This meal is definitely an easy one, but it sure was tasty. All you have to do is chop up all of the ingredients and throw them on the stove in a large-sized pan. Peppers, squash and onions should be put on the stove first, since they take the longest, followed by mushrooms, then the greens, with the rest drizzled on top afterwards. This meal was one of the first ones that I cooked solely for myself; I might have to slowly get the boys used to vegetables that aren’t fried or hidden in a chicken. I hope all you veggie eaters out there enjoy, and to those who aren’t, give it a try, I didn’t try a lot of vegetables till I got to college, and they’re quite delicious.
