Salad days are definitely here again and I hope they stick around for awhile, but I know that when the hot summer arrives the spinach, arugula, lettuce and cilantro, so lush and abundant now, will languish and tomatoes and cucumbers will come into their own. Hopefully there will be some overlap so they can all be enjoyed together for a little while.
Radishes are at the point where they will keep better in the refrigerator than in the ground.
Cilantro doesn’t do well here in summer. I allow it to grow anywhere it wants to in my garden.
Our big weekend meal was yesterday so today I fixed a simple salad of torn spinach, sweet onion, Greek stuffed olives and grape tomatoes. I skipped the feta cheese since there was going to be cheese in the quesadillas.
Ingredients for the whole wheat quesadillas were: corn, sweet onion, red Fresno chilis, jalapeño, cilantro and horseradish cheddar cheese.
