Lettuce, Tons of Lettuce

     That old saying (although I don't know who said it) - "When life gives you lemons; you make lemonade."  Well, I am going to tweek it a little to:
             
  "When life gives you tons of lettuce, you make salad, 
                      lots of salad."



I am not complaining, but that is what took place in my garden the months of April, May, and June.  I had an abundance of different types of lettuce and I came up with new ways to enjoy it.

Salads are fun and can be mixed with fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, nuts, creamy dressings, and vinegarettes.  When creating my salads I used a homemade raspberry vinegar, preserved lemon (I had made a few weeks ago), raspberries, toasted almonds.  The list goes on.  Rather that give a bunch of recipes I am going to post photos of my salads and their ingredients.  My hope is that it will inspire you to make your own creations.
