It is the second to last day of the food writing challenge and today’s theme is seasonal recipe! Now anyone who says “April showers bring May flowers” has clearly never spent a spring in Oregon. I think the slogan should be more like “April and May rain every day”. The rainy season is finally (hopefully?) coming to an end and opening up to sun and lots of fresh produce! I am so excited for the beginning of summer because of all the fresh produce that will be available. Currently the in season food that I am obsessed with is kale, spinach and beets. As I mentioned in my previous post about my favorite vegetable I love having kale salads. I have been making lots of salads the following way quantities vary based on your preference.
- Beet Greens, Cut thin
- Spinach, Cut thin
- Kale, ripped and massaged
- Beets, roasted with oil and salt
- Almonds, toasted
- Salad Dressing of your choice
