Hello beautiful. Hello Farmer's Market Cobb Salad. I have the talented California farmers to thank for this beautiful display.
One of my favorite ways to use fresh farmer's market produce is to make a giant, beautiful salad displaying some of the goodies in a plating style that is similar to a Cobb Salad. The beauty of this idea is that you can easily use whatever seasonal produce your market is selling, and change up the selections as seasons and your tastes change.
Make Ahead Meal Approved. I love to make this salad early in the day, place it in the fridge and pull it out at dinnertime. Add some toasted bread slathered in easy hummus or vegenaise, maybe a side of broth-y soup and dinner is done. If making ahead of time just be sure to use hearty greens like kale, collards or chard.
I have a basic formula for how I like to make this salad, so I hope you pull out all those goodies in your produce drawer and join me in making this one-bowl wonder plant feast!..
Need a lift? Here you go. This Lifting Lemon-Garlic Rice & Lentil Soup was our Sunday-night Easter dinner and it was amazing! Bright lemon tones mingle with perky garlic and plentiful spices including black pepper, turmeric and a hint of cayenne. Nutty brown rice creates body and texture as super swoon-worthy, peppery and firm-style Le Puy lentils add depth, protein and heartiness. Some nutritional yeast (optional) adds thickness and a cheezy savory flavor. You will love this lemon-y one-bowl meal! And yes you can pair this bowl with a side salad featuring roasted chili-maple beets and orange hummus, like we did, if you'd like. Spring soup is on..
