Thanks for joining in. I would imagine your experiences are quite different from growing up here but am glad you found some commonalities in the whole grain breads that were more readily available. Your salad is perfect for the book and looks delicious to boot. I would happily eat it! ;-) Thank you too for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week.

I love your photos of that produce! We have one market that opened up two weekends ago. I can't wait to start buying fresh and local again. Be well!

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Deb :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra. I love the color contrast too. Happy return to the market :)


What a delicious salad, and a perfect take from the book! I love your photo of the salad surrounded by a wreath of microgreens.

What a great summer salad made with local ingredients from the Farmer's Market...perfect when talking about this book.

Simona Carini

Thank you, Claudia :)

It's been 80-some degrees here all week, and I could certainly relish a summer salad right now. I too try to use most all parts of the vegetables I get from the farmers market, as the greens can often be more intriguing than the root vegetable itself. Luckily for you living in Italy, you were able to forego the pleasures of Wonder Bread.

Simona Carini

Yikes, Cathy, that's hot—and I can imagine wanting to eat refreshing dishes like salads :)

P.S. Indeed, for unknown reasons, your comments do not get published immediately and I need to do that manually. Apologies for TypePad's rude treatment.

Delaware Girl Eats

I guess we will get the better of Typepad eventually....
