Oh this was so yummy! I got the idea for this salad from one of eMeals simple sides – Pear Feta Salad. I took what I had on hand, and fresh in the garden though, versus a store bought salad mix. I also prepared my own Vinaigrette after doing a little research into what exactly makes a vinaigrette.
My lettuce and peas are ready to start harvesting, but the carrots still needed a little time, so I left them out of the salad. I do feel it’s lacking in a little color, but it is not lacking in flavor!
I get little flutters every time I look out into the garden. I always thought having a large garden would be hard. That it took lots of time and care to get vegetables to grow, but guess what – it really isn’t that hard! The hardest part for me has been the weeding. The previous owners used cow manure every year, which is great for the soil, but terrible for weeds. My friend told me to try sheep manure in the future, because the sheep actually grind any seeds they eat down, so they won’t regrow out of the manure, unlike cows. Just a bit of info for you today .
Whoa, I digress – let’s get back to this salad! I wasn’t sure at first if it was really good enough to share here on Foodie Friday, but the more I ate, the more I loved. I can still taste the light taste of the vinaigrette, mixed with feta and peas on my lips. So yummy!

Your salad looks fantastic…congrats on your garden growing so well. We don't have anything this year yet.
Thank you so much for featuring my Roast Beef Pesto Panini Adelina, that's so exciting! I love the combination of flavors in your salad, I am always looking for new ideas. We had so much rain this spring, I never even got a chance to plant a garden 🙁 Congratulations on yours, that's wonderful. Have a great weekend, Lisa
