Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard

It's already Friday, but here it is...

Not everything is from my garden, but I love this salad. A very simple salad with just apples, carrots, and water cress in lettuce cups. The carrots and water cress are from my garden. Water cress has been exploding especially with this cool weather. The initial germination was very poor, and it kept getting eaten by something during summer. But once they got going, they GOT GOING! I think it's one of those "love or hate" things, and both my husband and I love this unique taste. I hope that it will survive in the hoophouse to give us some fresh greens during the winter months.

So back to the salad, the water cress is actually optional. I've put in some raisins, which is nice. They are tossed in a very simple apple cider vinaigrette (apple cider vinegar + sugar + salt + dijon mustard + pepper + onion powder), and arranged in lettuce cups. The lettuce cups can also be cabbage cups, especially this time of year. Savoy might be really nice.

Tonight we are expecting 33F!!! I've covered up some things in the garden, hoping there won't be much damage....

I'm linking up to Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard at Robin's. Visit and see what kinds of exciting things are coming out of everyone's kitchens!
