So, I have this friend who is an amazing gardener and whose yard is overflowing with the best produce you can imagine that I get to tend to over the next two weeks. Let’s hope it lives, since I’m the grim reaper of gardening! The other day she sent me this picture with a great dinner salad recipe.The measurements aren’t exact so you can play with it however you wish, adding or omitting whatever you like.

Scott’s Garden Tex Mex Salad

You will need a mixture of the following:

yellow pepper, cored and chopped

onion, diced finely

fresh raw peas, shelled

fresh new raw green or yellow beans, trimmed and chopped into 1 inch pieces

golden and red beets, cooked, cooled, and diced

small hot yellow pepper, diced

green onion, chopped

Toss it all in a large bowl. Set aside. In a small bowl, stir together a bit of mayo, some lime juice, and a hint of ketchup to sweeten it up a bit. Taste as you go to get the amounts right. Add it to your veggie mixture with some rinsed black beans, and toss.

Serve on a bed of mixed salad greens, then top with pan fried chorizo slices and grated cheddar cheese.

Yum! Healthy and delicious!
