Farmer’s Market Salad

2 Feb

There’s something enjoyable about a simple meal. I think I mostly enjoy the rhythm in a simple meal; there’s no frantically running to here from there making sure this gets stirred and that gets mixed. It just you and the ingredients getting together for a nice little party in your mouth. There’s no pressure to impress but if you’re using quality ingredients you know you will anyway, even if it’s just you and the food. Sometimes I like it better that way. I made this salad for a quick work-day lunch with our fare from the Farmer’s Market.
fresh basil
cherry tomatoes
artichoke hearts
baby mozzarella (bocconcini)
arugula

Then I caught it being pretty

And then I sauced it with olive oil and balsamic

Then I ate it and lunch was over.
