The best ingredients lead to the simplest, tastiest meals. Day by day, it's easier to answer the "what's for dinner" question with real food as close to its natural state as possible.
This spring salad, for example, relies on ultra-fresh salad mix, sweet carrots, and pungent green onions all grown locally by Kelly Morrison of Color Fields Farm in Hillsborough, NC. (She grows amazing flowers for weddings, events, and daily delights too.) Because she rinses everything three times, I can get by with a single rinse at home. This fresh spring salad is healthy, with lots of vitamins and minerals but only 19 calories. It's wildly affordable too, at just $1.43 per serving using top-quality, local, and organic ingredients.
