Today was lettuce memory day. My mom always planted a big garden, believe me when you’re picking peas and it takes all day, it’s a big garden!
Lettuce, radishes and green onions were the first planted and first picked. Then we enjoyed mom’s amazing garden salad. Now, this is not a healthy-all you can eat-salad….this is a salad dressed with cream and vinegar. Full on thick cream. Damn was it good. How could it not be, right?
Today I picked my own garden lettuce and prepared a salad for my family, but I shy away from the heavy cream in favor of a light balsamic.
My mom might have enjoyed my take on a homegrown green leaf lettuce salad….but my dad would be looking for the cream or the thousand island dressing.
