Garden to Table Salad

There’s nothing more pure than picking vegetables from your garden and making a meal from them. Organic in nature, homegrown vegetables are fresher and more flavorful than anything you’ll buy at the store.

The farm-to-table movement has exploded across the U.S., and that same concept can be applied to your own cooking. If you don’t have a garden or a friend with a garden, simply join a CSA to get locally-grown produce. Feel free to improvise based on what’s in season in your locale.
