"My daughter @erin.cauley and I decided we wanted to start making the weekends special since one day runs into another when you are housebound. She got up early and waited in line at our local market with her facemask and gloves and an ingredient list. This is our spring salad of peppery arugula, blanched sugar snap peas & edamame, thinly sliced leeks, shaved cucumbers and creamy burrata all drizzled with olive oil & fresh squeezed lemon, salt & pepper. The forsythia is blooming in our garden and is always the first sign of spring and rebirth to me. Did you know the blossom is actually edible? Anyway, this salad sure was a refreshing change from our usual daily salad of a mix of whatever veggies we can find in the fridge! 😄"
