  • Fruit Salad[on its own, in a smoothie or spooned over full-fat yogurt and homemade granola OR silver dollar buckwheat pancakes]: chopped Blackberries, black cherries, gala apples, ginger, fresh Turkish figs, cilantro, buckwheat honey, lemon juice, cherry/carrot juice.
  • Shrimp and Quail egg salad [Serve with dandelion greens on whole wheat halved pocketless pita.]: slow-cook local dried shrimp, boil quail eggs, set aside to cool then splice. add coriander, spicy mustard.
  • Fingerling potato salad: Boiled red, blue and white fingerling potatoes. set aside to cool. Blanch string beans in cold water, halve and add. Add red pepper, kosher salt, basil, cilantro and full-fat sour cream. I used to do this with prosciutto added. It’s actually better without it[textures]. Crisp bacon might be hot though.

I’m being weird about nixing olives lately. If in two months some huge olive travesty goes down, I’m going to be sooo spooked.
