Three gardens.  One salad.  Devoured by many.  This is a sneak peak of one of the recipes that will likely be in my cookbook, with more exact measurements and instructions attached.

The potatoes are from the organic community agriculture project that I’ve become a part of (aka, we finally have veg baskets in Saskatchewan like the ones everyone else is bragging about!), the spinach, radishes and green onions were from my friend’s garden that I’m helping tend in return for produce, and the herbs were my doing!

Potato Salad

Now, let’s see if I can remember the ingredients…

– potatoes, cut into smallish cubes and boiled, skins on

– a large handful of fresh spinach

– some green onions, chopped

– a few garden radishes, thinly sliced

– chopped fresh dill and chives

Toss together, then add a dressing made of

– a little extra virgin olive oil

– a good splash of chive flower vinegar (where you’ve soaked chive flowers with vinegar, turning the vinegar pink and flavouring it, a trick I took from Where It All Vegan, I think).  Or, I bet cider vinegar would work well too

– a little dry mustard

– freshly ground salt and pepper

I think that was everything.  I’ll add an update if I remember any forgotten ingredients.

Experimenting time!  As mentioned previously, I’ve been doing some reading on raw foods.  I had read about eating raw potatoes, and mentioned it to a friend, who immediately wanted to know more.  Yet the book I read didn’t have any actual recipes for raw potato in it.  So, I made up my own.  Can’t say it’s my favourite thing to eat, but it’s not terrible.  Needs some work still.  That and the graininess of raw potato kinda irks me.  Still, I’ll share my recipe, and if anyone knows how to make a better raw potato recipe, please do speak up!  (Oh, and I’ve got plenty of raw sweet potato recipes, so don’t worry about that one.)

Some Sorta Potato Slaw

1 potato, grated
a few cherry/berry tomatoes or a whole tomato, sliced
a large handful fresh parsley, chopped up
half an avocado, mashed
lemon juice (about 1/4 a lemon)
small drizzle olive oil
a little sea salt and pepper

Just mix everything together.  Not much more to it than that.
