Spring has been welcomed at home with this salad made with ecologic fruits and vegetables. The star of the salad was a gift from Laura who came from being in a garden and gave me spiked cauliflowerets, stem cabbage spikes, red swiss chard and a large goose egg I’ll try in these days. Thanks! It was so good. I did it as a personal treat and ate it with a nice cold lemonade.
