Early this morning I made some crisp, quick pickles with the kirby cucumbers I received this week.
Green Leaf Salad with Bacon, Mushrooms, and Red Onions and Apricot Nectar Dressing
This was a killer salad; I will definitely make this again this summer. The original recipe called for spinach leaves, I switched that out with my green leaf lettuce from the mobile market and since the dressing called for apple cider, and that's not in season right now, I used an apricot nectar. It all turned out great.
And one of my FAVORITE dessert standby's…a Rhubarb Raspberry Crumble. (I stock up on rhubarb when it’s in season – I wash it, chunk it, and freeze it in individual servings.) So good, in my opinion vanilla ice cream not required, but a welcome addition. I think I hear it calling my name...
