Salad Days of Summer

My patio is my summer sanctuary, surrounded by trees and filled with herbs, tomatoes, wheat grass and lavender. With my little Terrier resting at my feet, it’s my favourite place to have dinner on a warm summer night.

And my favourite dinner? A great, big Farmer’s Market salad, like this one..

Did you know that summer berries are the best way to get antioxidant, fiber rich, vitamin filled goodness into your body? Put them in smoothies and salads, add a little avocado (full of omega 3 fat) and watch your skin glow.
