Smoked Salmon Potato Salad

Well, its hot and humid again in Northeast Ohio, so tonight I wanted something light and cool for dinner.

I found this recipe a couple weeks ago at a blog called Two Spoons – I definitely recommend checking it out!  It called for hardboiled eggs, but I’m not  a fan, so I just skipped that step.  It’s basically new potatoes (from my CSA box), finely chopped onions (from my CSA box), celery and celery leaves, fresh dill, lemon juice, olive oil, smoked salmon, salt and pepper.  So yummy!

My CSA box on Friday was fantastic.  Not only did I get the potatoes and white onions I used in the recipe, but also several heads of cabbage (coleslaw, anyone?), cucumbers, pickling cucumbers (eaten by Brian Friday night), zucchini and yellow squash, garlic, green onions and spring onions.  Here’s a shout out to Basket of Life Farm!  It’s amazing the difference that truely fresh produce makes.

Even after making a big ol’ batch of coleslaw on Saturday, I still have two heads of cabbage to use up, so any cabbage recipes/suggestions are welcome!

In a couple days, I’ll post an update and some pictures of the topsy turvys.  A bunch of tomatoes are starting to turn red, and the pepper plants are just exploding!  You can barely see the planter – there has to be at least several dozen peppers that are getting big enough to pick.  Can’t wait to make some fresh salsa!

    Melissa, you are just out doing yourself time after time! What a great idea. And, how healthy! So happy you are keeping the blog alive. ( I still can’t figure out how to post pictures with this new computer, maybe you can help me next time you come over.) Can’t wait to see your posts about your topsy turvys. 🙂

      Thanks! It was really good. It could maybe have used some of that garlic scape butter garlic bread on the side though….
