The farmers market in Los Angeles is starting to flow with incredible produce. There are also a few stalls that sell their own products from yogurt to salsa to mozzarella. As always, I find it hard to restrain myself!
We had friends over for dinner and concocted a salad based on what I picked up at the Mar Vista Farmers market. It was a score, and had leftovers for lunch the next day. That is when I finally took a picture.
- Shaved Brussel Sprouts
- Fresh peas (blanched)
- Hearts of Palm sliced
- White Beans (already cooked and drained – these were seasoned a bit from the farmer
- Pickled onions chopped (just a handful)
- Chopped cilantro
- Crumbled tortilla chips
Put all of this together and mix with a spicy lime chili vinagrette
- 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 2 tsp. maple syrup
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- salt for taste
I separated everything out and tossed right before dinner. Served with pan fried shrimp, sliced avocados, corn tortilla quesodillos with Cojita cheese and roasted cabbage leaves. Delish!! Just need a few shots of tequila for an added bonus.
