Farmer’s Market Lunch

Posted on June 24, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |

One of the items on my Summer Bucket List was to have a farmer’s market dinner party, using only fresh ingredients bought that day to make the meal. Well, I had my farmer’s market meal but it was a little different than my original plan. While in Cincinnati for a wedding over the weekend, I went to Findlay’s Market with friends. It was awesome! It’s an indoor/outdoor market with mostly food items but some other stands here and there. We decided to buy a bunch of fresh vegetables and make a huge salad plus a little Caprese side salad.  The website has a full list of merchants but we definitely took our time browsing and enjoying samples of cheese, hummus, bread, olive oil, etc. After browsing we ended up purchasing some mixed baby greens, kale, Roma tomatoes, a carrot, a yellow pepper, a red pepper, some Olive Garden salad dressing, a cucumber, some fresh mozzarella and basil. Yum! I chopped up the veggies and mixed them with the salad dressing while Ally assembled the Caprese salad. It all came out delicious was so fresh.  A perfect lunch before a night of indulging at a wedding.
