Keep it simple, but beautiful, by using your favorite antique bowl and a wooden serving spoon made by Jonathan Spoons to showcase and serve the seasons bounty of fresh greens. Linda enjoys serving a garden mix of greens, in season, fruit and edible nasturtium. Use a simple, light vinaigrette or in this case no dressing at all. To complement the salad, grill a fish or meat of your choice, and enjoy the season's harvest.
