Wild Eats

Tonight for dinner we feasted on this incredible salad with our entree. Hubs gathered up wild violets from the yard and tossed them with local greens, shaved Parmesan and a homemade honey-tarragon vinaigrette.

AMAZING!!! Wild food is: 1) delicious, 2) nutritious, and 3) FREE!!!

Ashley- Beautiful salad!

I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog for a really fantastic book on foraging and cooking wild edibles from the Pacific NW- and having such great responses from people. I love getting new people excited about wild foods!

Hi Ashley,

Our family has been gobbling wild nettles galore here in the Pacific Northwest. They are heavenly!
Many happy springtime wishes to you and yours!
