Spring Salad Obsession

As Spring drifts into summer, I’m furiously making my favorite spring salad; I’m trying to enjoy it as much as I can before radishes, green onions, and garlic scapes are no longer in season.

I admit that I’d had a huge breakfast and time wasn’t on my side – I wanted to stop in on … Continue reading green lunch at Angelica Kitchen, NYC
