This salad idea is for you if you are a keen gardener with a vegetable plot or if your flower beds are a riot of color in spring. The ingredients could be something you might have grown as part of your favorite pastime. Any harvest can be served at the table to the amusement of your friends invited to a truly garden-grown lunch.
I love the Spring in full bloom. Everywhere you turn around our house, there is a blooming tree or a garden full of color.
