“Kindness is the only strength there is.” Gregory Boyle
I am so excited for the arrival of all the luscious foods that come in the spring. OK. I know strawberries are available year round, but there are no strawberries good as strawberries that are warmed from the sun, right out of a you-pick field. When you find such jewels, try this recipe. If your only option are store bought, life will still be good.
4 T lemon juice
2 T olive oil
1 T raw honey
leafy greens – spinach works well
unsalted, raw pistachios
Whisk together the first three ingredients. You just made a lemony honey dressing. You’re good!
Plate up some greens festooned with sliced strawberries and sprinkled with pistachios. Drizzle on some of the dressing.
What would I serve with this spring delight? Maybe a yogurt parfait as a followup – plain yogurt layered with different fruits and a few chopped walnuts on the top.
For my husband there would be a grilled cheese. For company this would simply be a first course with maybe a baked potato with fixings for course number two. I’m getting hungry for spring!
