Our dinner: before and after
Much to my surprise, my little balcony has provided the ideal growing condition for my greens. I can't seem to keep up with them! Which is pretty great cause Sime and I are now eating at least a salad a day. Sadly, my other little plant babies aren't doing so hot. Something is eating its way through my basil, my tomato looks sad and my herbs are protesting living/growing in Toronto by simply not doing anything. They are the exact same size as the day that I planted them.
I pillaged my sad little basil plants to make this salad dressing. It's really gooooooood.
bunch of basil
about a tbsp of honey
about a tbsp of dijon mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
a good splash of balsamic vinegar
salt / pepper to taste.
I pureed the whole mess in my food processor, dumped it on my greens and then ate my balcony salad on my balcony. Our own version of eating local.
