Spring Salad Dressing / Topeka, KS

I gave the garden another shot this season, so please keep your fingers crossed for me. I do love fresh produce during the year. You can grow some remarkable lettuce in Ohio during the spring. By summer, it gets too hot and the lettuce goes to seed. There is nothing better than going outside and picking the greens that you are going to eat within the hour. The flavors of produce are amazing when they are fresh. My brother Mat always wanted to grow corn right outside his kitchen window. He thinks that he could bend the plant through the kitchen window, shuck and wash the corn, dip the corn in a pot of boiling water, and then cut the corn cob off the stalk so that the cob stays right in the boiling pot of water and is cooked as fresh as possible. Personally, I love the idea!
I am going to share a recipe with you that I think is wonderful for a fresh spring salad. It does not have a real strong flavor, so you can still taste the different flavors of your greens.
