Purple beans! Well, technically, the name is Royal Burgundy Bush Bean, and boy are they beautiful. They were the first to be ready this year, so they must love water. Always great to have new trial varieties turn out so well.
I've been saying I was going to add the picture of the Melon Prosciutto Salad for two weeks now, and here it is! Bee Bags have been great fun to create. I love trying new recipes and tasting new flavors.
This salad in particular sounded interesting, but not anything special when I first started testing menu ideas. I'm ok with cantaloupe, but it's not my favorite. Tonight, when I finally made the recipe again - this time to photograph it - I was abruptly reminded why this one made the list. The flavors are bold and contrasting and refreshing and filling and amazing! This is no wimpy lettuce salad with a little fruit sprinkled on top.
FYI - another great use for Bee Bags: if you have a babysitter scheduled for hours that include mealtime, pick up a Bee Bag for her/him. Most young people haven't developed serious cooking skills yet, and Bee Bags will help them easily prepare a balanced meal. And all our meals are kid-tested on the resident 7-year old. Thanks to Emma for helping me discover that one!
Pink Beauty radish are a so bright and cheerful and delicate - until you take a bite; then that familiar radish zing takes over! My daughter discovered this pretty radish by accident last year. I've added it to our regular garden rotation.
To be sure, we are thankful for radish that get up and get going in the spring.
Radish play a feature role in one of our Bee Bag meals - Broiled corn and black bean salad. It's a great fresh, bright, filling salad that goes well with cooking that doesn't take long in the kitchen. Enjoy!
