Last night was dinner at a friends house it was great to take a salad of every leafy green vegetable and edible flower in the garden. It made a lovely big salad with a few radishes tossed in for colour.
The first time I tasted a simple vinaigrette was in a french class at school. The teacher sliced tomato put a little oil, vinegar, salt and pepper on and passed it around for us to taste. I fell in love it was so delicious and so simple. Why would you buy Salad Dressing from the Supermarket when all you need is oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Yesterdays dressing was a little more complex, a number of garlic cloves, 2 sprigs of Rosemary whizzed up in the blender with oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. A small coffee jar full of very tasty dressing. Venessa liked it so much we left it behind.
Tonight a simple meal, Gnocchi, a meat sauce and beetroot leaves cooked with the Gnocchi.
