Farm to Fork Organic Salad

I went to Vincent’s Eco Farm today and got a wonderful box of fresh organic produce.  I chose produce that was cultivated on the estate.  There was a huge variety but I chose cauliflower, egglplants, a mix of coloured tomatoes, bulgarian tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, carrots, kale, onion, lemons and more.

You should see the size of the cucumbers, those old fashioned type ones that nanna would put in her salads.

Finish off with the fresh herbs, grated lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

Simplicity is always best with fresh ingredients as close to their natural state as possible.
