Winter Salad

This is the second year I used my very tall rabbit- proof greens garden.

I planted the seeds, went on a trip putting Mother Nature in charge and came home to a full bed of lettuces.

My rabbit- proof garden does not grow much, but it makes a nice small salad to go with lunches.  Here is a quick recipe for dressing made from ingredients you probably have around the house.

1/4 cup of red wine vinegar

1 TB of olive oil

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1/4 teaspoon of pepper

4 garlic cloves minced or jarred garlic

The dressing has a bite to it, so I use it sparingly.  Store in a small jar in the refrigerator.

    Looks too good to eat. No fresh garden greens in the northeast.

    Mother nature’s care is best, what a tasty looking salad bed!

  4. 4 garlic cloves? that will keep the rabbits away! And I will love it.I weeded my front beds and the rabbits moved to the back to eat my Red Romaine…walking the greyhound through the garden did not help – then, the rabbit ate the radish greens and I think Bok Choy and Green Onions. Fortunately, bunny does not seem to like Cilantro, Green Beans and Zucchini. Arggh

    I am pleased that we lack rabbits. We take salad greens for granted. We only need a fence to keep the deer out. (Fences would not keep rabbits out.)

    • My former house backed up to another house and we all had dogs, so I could grow lots of veggies in the ground, except for strawberries which my dog ate. My current house has a greenbelt behind it and it is the perfect pathway for animals. I just found a massive hole in a flower bed…probably an armadillo.

    Your rabbit proof greens garden looks wonderful. I’m slightly jealous that you are able to eat greens out of your garden in January. 🙂

    Wow that is a high percentage of vinegar to oil! If I wasn’t just using our own oil (which doesn’t need any other ingredients) I would use two thirds oil to one third vinegar or lemon juice. Your lettuces look wonderful.
