snap pea + strawberry salad

snowpea strawberry salad

Nothing screams English garden to me as much as green peas and strawberries! And they both are flushing in my yard right now. This bright and sweet salad is entirely from a mid day wonder around the yard (with the exception of a small walla walla onion), the dressing is made with that yummy saskatoon syrup I made last week, blended into a zippy balsamic vinegarette.

simple summer hemp tabouli

There is nothing like a fresh bunch of parsley to make one crave tabouli salad, bright and green, fresh and crisp. My mother in law is visiting this week and she came home from the local market with a huge bunch of organic parsley, and immediatly I put the couscous on!

quickly boil 1 cup of water along with a glug of brags and season with S+P and lemon peel, add 1 cup of couscous, stir and remove from heat and cover, set aside for 5 minutes.

meanwhile finely chop 1 bunch of fresh parsley and toss it in a large bowl.

give the lot a good glug of olive oil as well as hemp oil (about 1/4 cup+ total)

add 3 cloves of minced garlic

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

season with S+P

add 1/2 cup hemp hearts

Once the couscous has sat for 5 minutes, fluff it with a fork and add it to the parsley with, toss and refrigerate for an hour, then enjoy!

This is lovely when you substitute millet for couscous to make it gluten and wheat free!
