Here’s to summer, looking forward to sharing it with you.
These days, it kind of feels like a flavor crutch to add bacon to a recipe, but it’s awesome in this slaw and the dish still tastes fresh.

Meyer lemons are great for salad dressing as well. Here is one of the easiest dressing recipes I’ve ever done, and it has great crowd appeal. Even the children love it. It goes perfectly with all my leafy greens that are growing so well in the garden right now: mâche, butter lettuce, romaine lettuce, arugula, mesclun, and wild arugula. I simply trim a small amount of each to make my own “Valerie” salad mix—it’s the definition of fresh, and oh so delicious.
