Introduction: AROMA - Spring Vitamin Salad From My Garden
Hello fellow humans :)
Grow your own food , or at least grow some vegetables and aromatic herbs you can use fresh at your convenience and you do not have to go to the market. If you do not have a garden, aromatic herbs can grow in pots on a kitchen window or at the balcony.
I am growing some perennial aromatic l plants on organic base , using natural compost and nettle juice as fertilizer. Also I like to harvest wild edible plants from nature.
AROMA SPRING SALAD is healthy , full of vitamins, minerals and fibers. It will bust your immunity and give you energy for the day. It is low calories food , excellent for your digestion tract. You can eat it this salad as a single meal - or additionally with other food . This is not a recipe with measuring , but I am using one handful of herbs for a person.
For AROMA SPRING VITAMIN SALAD I am using :
lettuce ( from my neighbors garden :) )
sunflower raw seeds
olive oil and green olives
red Himalayan salt
mayonnaise , fresh home made white cheese
and this aromatic herbs from my garden :
Chives - Allium tuberosum, green leaf onion that grows from clusters ,commonly calledChinese chives
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis ) few fresh leafs
Basil herb - hybrid plant mixed with mint variety
Oregano - Origanum vulgare –- fresh leafs
Rosemary - Rosmarinus officinalis - some leafs
Calendula - Calendula officinalis just a few petals for decoration
Dandelion flowers - a few petals for decoration to , because leafs are over grown for now and to bitter to eat.
Sage - (Salvia officinalis ) few leafs
Mint plant Mentha Piperita - few leafs
Wild garlic - (ramsons) Allium ursinum - that grows at this time of the year in the forests.
Step 1: Picking Herbs From the Garden
I go to my garden and cut some fresh leafs and flowers for the salad
Step 2: Wash , Chop , Cut and Mix
Step 3: More Choping , Mixing , Adding
Lettuce and radishes ... Raw sunflower seeds rich in nutrients , fresh cow cheese , olive oil and Himalayan red salt
Step 4: Dressing
I am using lemon juice but you can use Apple cider vinegar or special taste Italian Balsamico vinegar
After gentle mixing I am adding some mayonnaise and olives .
Some fresh petals from edible flowers are added for decoration this time - but they have their own qualities and healing properties..
Step 5: BON APETITE ! :)
AROMA SPRING SALAD should be eaten immediately after preparing due to quick oxidation of lettuce and other herbs exposed to lemon juice or vinegar.
