I was sooo excited about this.
I don't know why.
I am a geek.
It's our first ripe red raspberry. Ever!
I have never grown raspberries before & I was screaming in hysterics calling everyone outside to look.
Thankfully, Avers was just as excited as I was, so I didn't look like a total freak.
After I snapped the pic she immediately popped it into her mouth!
I had bought some at the Farmer's Market & then when I picked up my CSA box this week there was more.
I love it!
Here's what I did with all those beauties.......
Immediately plunge into an ice water bath.
Strain, dry & add to a bowl.
Chop 2 large tomatoes & add to bowl.
Chop 1 large red onion & add to bowl.
Drain, rinse & add 1 can white beans to bowl.
In a small bowl add 4 tbls. olive oil, 2-3 tbls. red wine vinegar (I like a LOT of vinegar so I add 3.), 1 large minced garlic clove, 1 tsp. fresh chopped dill or 1/2 tsp. dry, 1 tsp. fresh minced parsley, 1 tsp. dijon mustard, salt & pepper to taste.
Whisk dressing well & pour over veggies.
You can also add 1/2 carton of feta cheese. The cheese is really delicious in this recipe but I was trying to keep it vegan for my "Detox Friends".
This salad keeps really well in the fridge & it's also great picnic fare.
