Fresh Salad Greens with Classic Vinaigrette – lovely fresh salad greens dressed simply with a classic French vinaigrette recipe.

Today was an absolutely beautiful spring day here in north Georgia. So beautiful, in fact, that I could not resist spending part of my lunch hour outside on the deck…a wonderful benefit of working from home.

Salad greens growing in a planter.

On my way out the door I picked up my kitchen shears and a basket and filled it with the most gorgeous baby salad greens from a large, long planter that BeeBop put out on the deck for me.

I’ve never grown salad greens or radishes before. This is my first attempt. I have to tell you it’s so easy. They practically take care of themselves.

Fresh radishes from the garden.

Since I haven’t grown them before, I wasn’t quite sure whether the radishes were ready to eat, so I just pulled a few to try. Incredibly delicious! Crunchy, sweet and not peppery like the ones I’ve always had from the grocery store.

  1. I am very jealous that you have a deck to grow lettuces on! Sadly, I am in a rental at the moment and have no outdoor space to use as my own. :( Someday I hope to have pretty fresh lettuce like yours!

  2. I’m envious of your lettuce, standing tall and green. Mine is in a pitiful state. I’ll have to sow more this weekend.

  3. I LOVE fresh veggies from teh garden – nothing else compares really (ok, well, maybe the farmers market veggies). The recipe looks amazing and sounds great too.

  4. great salad…..so fresh…….i grow my greens too n they taste so good you never want to have the store bought ones.

  5. All the good advise on growing our own veggies and herbs is so wonderful! We have a Chef’s Garden with many herbs and some veggies. It is pure pleasure to work in it and then reap the results as you did. Bravo, great post, pretty deck! Best from Santa Barbara, s

  6. Oh my goodness. Doesn’t that look wonderful? I know why that planter is on the deck. Just as if it were here, if that was planted directly into the ground, all the deer would send out word that “the salad bar just opened!”

    We drove in tonight from church a little later than normal, and there were 14 deer in the pasture behind the house. I guess that they were a bit peeved that we disturbed their grazing.

    Have a great day, and a great salad. So healthy.

  7. That’s funny I also posted a salad and a vinaigrette to day, too.. Though, my greens aren’t as fresh as yours. Yours is as fresh as they come.
