We are getting quite the harvest from our backyard these days our greens have come up as well as some early season sweet peas and mulberries from our tree. One of my favorite dinners to make during the growing season is backyard salads using what we have available, with these few ingredients I was able to do just that. I chopped up the lettuce, added some whole sweet peas and topped it with the mulberries. Since we raise our own poultry I was able to add one of our backyard chickens that had been previously cooked in the slow cooker and diced. The majority of the salad came straight from our yard I only added a few extras that we didn't produce some bacon, mozzarella and croutons. I topped the salad with a 25 year balsamic vinaigrette and it was the perfect backyard summer dinner.
It is dinners like these that remind me of the great satisfaction from the hard work of homesteading.
