Seasonal Salad from Heirloom Organic Gardens

Finally it's raining! I've been hearing from the folks at Heirloom Organic Gardens & Eatwell Farms that the lack of rain has hindered their crops and they haven't been able to grow full heads of cabbage - which require a lot of rain. It's been raining for a solid 3 days now which is GREAT! Looking forward to all the spring vegetables coming our way. In anticipation here is a tip of the hat to the Ferry Building Farmer's Market, Heirloom Organic Gardens, & Gordon Clark....
The greens pictured above are curly kale and a type of arugula from Heirloom Organic Gardens. Below is a mix of greens selected from the farmer's market to go our salad as part of Create a Farmer's Market Feast
Delicious salad made with seasonal greens, fennel, hard boiled egg, grated beet, radishes and sliced onion.
Gordon Clark's Special Salad Dressing:
Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and a spicy type of mustard
The dressing is so good that I thought there were some additional secret ingredients, but not it really is just that simple. So what's the trick? Put it all in a Tupperware container and mix with some elbow grease.

Loving this recipe so much. I made it at my grandma’s house. The combination of recipes goes well with each other and the taste is certainly admirable. www.gourmandia.ca and www.coffeefashion .com also have interesting recipes that you’ll surely want to try!
