It’s a long weekend here in Canada, and so far it has been a great one! We kicked it off with a trip to Ikea on Saturday, on a mission to find patio furniture. We’ve been looking for weeks, but have had one hell of a time finding a set that would fit out the narrow window-door that leads to our rooftop, where the patio is located. But Ikea never lets me down – success!
Today was an absolutely beautiful day in Toronto, so I took advantage by spending a little time in my community garden plot, and a little more time tending to the potted plants in the patio garden. I’m so excited by how much the kale has grown in the three weeks since I planted it. Same thing with the herb! My mint, basil and cilantro have become especially huge – here are some progress pics.
I also planted some new little kale plants, along with a few rainbow chard.
So I took advantage of the bounty of spring herbs and created a new salad dressing for my kale, broccoli raab and cabbage salad.
Spring Herb Dressing
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp tamari
handful each of chives, cilantro, parsley
