This is the first year when I can proudly say I am a gardener. Everything you see on this plate comes from my backyard veggie garden. Sweet peas and beautiful radish are fully ripened. Carrots are still very small but there are plenty of herbs. There is no real recipe for this salad. It is just whatever you desire to put on a plate, sprinkle it with lemon juice, add oil and a pinch of salt. My lunch today was very simple and healthy at the same time. Today I did not feel like cooking anything complicated, it was “take it easy” day. I wish you to have an adventurous weekend – spend more time outside, go to a park, bike, garden. The summer is here and weather is beautiful!

Arrange radish slices, other vegetables, and herbs on a plate. In a small bowl whisk together grape seed oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Dress the salad just before serving. Have a good lunch!
