As a result of a recent Kaiser Permanente online newsletter, there were literally hundreds of new subscribers to this weekly farmers' market update and recipe. The timing was good as August 6 through 12 had been proclaimed National Farmers' Market Week by the Secretary of Agriculture for the United States.
This week and every week is a good time to buy some of your food directly from the farmers who grew it. Check out the days, times, and locations of all the Kaiser Permanente markets here.
During this time of year, the ingredients for this week's salad can be found at markets around the country. It is fresh, simple, light, and tasty.
The amounts of any of the ingredients are variable depending on taste and availability.
