As the weather cools, my Community Supported Agriculture, Stoneledge Farm, harvests a wide variety of lettuces.
These include (but are not limited to):
- Green Oak Lettuce
- Tropicana Lettuce
- Red Butter Crunch Lettuce
- Red Sails Lettuce
- Green Leaf Lettuce
No matter what kind of lettuce I get in my share, I know I can count the perfect dressing to make these leaves taste totally delish: Lemon, Garlic and Honey Dressing.
Not only does it dress my salad for success, it has health-supportive ingredients:
- Lemon gives you nice hit of Vitamin C and helps thin mucous
- Garlic is antimicrobial and antifungal
- Thyme is a natural expectorant that keeps the lungs clear
- Honey is antibacterial and soothes a cough
It’s the perfect dressing for the fall season, or at anytime of the year.
I hope you enjoy this delicious dressing as much as I do.
