Now that the weather is getting warmer, farmer’s markets are in full swing again. I love to try the different foods they carry that I can’t find everywhere. Plus I’m helping to support local farmers, which is a big added bonus. Last week I bought homemade raspberry vinegar and I tried a cut of goat meat. We’ve never tried goat before and would have to say we really enjoyed it! It’s a little culinary adventure right in our backyard. I can’t wait to see what I can find next week.
The raspberry vinegar made its way into a recipe based on one I found in a cookbook called Giada’s Kitchen. It’s a recipe that includes ingredients you can find at farmer’s markets right now.
Cantaloupe and Spring Green Salad
¼ cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 ½ tablespoons raspberry vinegar
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cantaloupe, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 cups spring greens, such as baby romaine or arugula
Whisk the ingredients for the vinaigrette together in a small bowl and toss with the salad. Enjoy!
