It’s time for summer salads with garden veggies in season. What grows in your mom’s or grandmother’s garden? I think these are definitely beets, green pea pods, raspberries, parsley and many other. So this salad is combination of them, but in very fancy way.
It is so juicy and rich in taste. I love to cook this salad during the weekend when I visit my mother at her summer house, when all greens, veggies and berries are freshly harvested from the garden.
