September Salad Days

21 Sep

There’s a cool breeze in the morning here in the ATL, but it’s not soup weather quite yet.  We are still firmly in eighty degree salad days…


What you can see (clockwise from top to bottom):

  • core of Iceberg lettuce
  • russet potato skin (baked)
  • 4 hibiscus tea bags
  • eggshell
  • red plum, well past its prime
  • onion skins
  • sprig of cilantro
  • shallot ends & skins
  • core of romaine lettuce
  • banana peel
  • squishy, moldy shallot (hate when I bring one of those home!)
  • grape stem

What you can’t see:

  • avocado skins
  • tomato core & tops
  • kale stems
  • more lettuce leaves

What I made with all of that:

Two days worth of big salads (including a version of this favorite) and baked potatoes and pitchers of iced tea!
