I’m not a salad girl. At a restaurant I’m much more likely to order ribs and fries than a plate full of greens, but lately I’ve been craving just that. Well, actually just one salad in particular. Madison’s most authentic Irish pub on the capitol square, Brocach is home to the amazing Shades of Green salad and today I got all the fixins’ and whipped up my own version. Here’s my recipe!
•Mixed greens—go with something more flavorful than Iceburg. I like a mix with frisée and some red or purple leaves, they have a bitterness that works great with the sweet elements in the toppings!
•Raspberry vinaigrette—the trick to a great salad is to toss your greens with your dressing before adding the rest of your ingredients!
•Bleu cheese crumbles
Mmmmm… I’m getting hungry again. Enjoy!
Apparently dandelions are the thing this summer—I had two custom projects featuring my dandelion gone to seed illustration this spring. If you’re looking to get in on the trend, try clicking here, here or here!
I’ve been chatting with the lovely and talented Megan of Foodalution about a possible project, so of course I’ve been spending a little time on her blog, which led me to the greatest discovery of all time: CANDIED BACON! It’s so easy and utterly amazing, check it out!
I STILL haven’t moved my press to the new house, but I spent some time at my parents’ last month and managed to get some printing done. I just sold my last set of recipe cards, so I whipped up some new ones in two tried-and-true botanical designs: yellow daisies and ice blue dandelion gone to seed. Available in the shop!
What’s the perfect gift for that lady who taught you how to cook, brought you countless baked goods in college and still asks what you want for dinner when you come home? Beautiful handmade recipe cards, of course!
I just finished these up last weekend — they’re printed with a really deep impression and the intersecting lines turned out really cool. They’re available for purchase here.
