I am always on the lookout for new salad recipes, especially this time of year when the farmers markets are over flowing with produce!  My new obsession is food52.com the recipes are amazing and easy to follow. Below is the grilled romaine … a Carolla favorite.

Food52 also has a hotline that answers any “burning” questions regarding the recipes.

As Michael Pollen says- it doesn’t have to complicated just EAT REAL FOOD.
