"Spontaneous me, Nature, The loving day, the mounting sun, ……..The hillside whiten'd with blossoms of the mountain ash, The same late in autumn, the hues of red, yellow, drab, purple, and light and dark green……."

–Walt Whitman (from the poem "Spontaneous Me")


….just a spontaneous post after thinking about one of my favorite Whitman poems, and just celebrating summer, celebrating farmer's markets, celebrating health and wellness, and celebrating the colors and spontaneity of meal creation in summer salads

The only comment I will make is to avoid toxic oils ESPECIALLY AVOID CANOLA OIL, my evaluation of all oils here,

…..also you can make a quick salad dressing by using half Olive Oil and half Apple Cider Vinegar
