Our first lettuce harvest

This isn't a particularly exciting meal since we just marinated some salmon and had a salad. But it's on the blog becauseee... it's our first lettuce harvest! As you can imagine this is from the plants that we bought at the Durham Farmers Market and transplanted into our container garden.

Isn't it pretty?!
Inspired by our fresh green leaves we decided to make a fancy salad. This was right after we had visited home and Granny shared some freshly picked local strawberries with us.

For the fancy salad we added a little arugula to our harvested lettuce and topped it with sliced strawberries, chopped pecans, and shaved parmesan. The salad was dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

The salad was served next to salmon marinated in a lemon pepper marinade. Of course you can prep your fancy salad while your salmon roasts and this meal is ready in less than 30 minutes!
