Farmers Market Salad

by Marisa Olsen in , , , , ,



I don’t think anyone can argue that this weekend was absolutely gorgeous. I felt lucky to be able to bask in the beautiful weather and even more grateful that I got to take advantage of the Upper West Side farmers market. In honor of a last gasp for summer, I created this simple, yet tasteful summer salad. Hopefully you’ll be able to enjoy it before the weather gets too chilly.

4 leaves of raw kale torn into small pieces
2 small heirloom tomatoes sliced
2 tablespoons of shaved fennel
1 tablespoon of homemade pesto or any variety you like (I used Marcella Hazan’s recipe)
1 tablespoon of Parmesan cheese
1 dash of maldon salt
2 cracks of fresh black pepper

Mix all together and enjoy!
