7 Salads to Use Your Garden Herbs

By Macki West |

Around this house we have salad every single day and we love it. We also have a garden out back that’s getting wild with herbs and lettuces. The great thing is that herbs are the easiest things to grow. I should know, as I kill just about everything, but my herbs just flourish. They also need hardly any space. You can even grown them in a window, so you have no excuse not to have fresh herbs growing (unless you live in a cave). Since my garden is overproducing and I need, desperately, to use them up, we decided to herb up our daily salad. The decision was a big hit, even with the little people. For those of you that are able to grow more than just herb,s I’ve found some great salads that use other summer garden veggies and lettuces. The bonus? You get to eat salad for almost free! I like the sound of that. Off to the garden to trim some herbs for our summer salad…

Pea, Butter Lettuce, and Herb Salad

Head out to the herb garden and grab scallions, parsley, chervil, tarragon and chives. For those with a large garden, go pick some of those fresh peas, radishes, and butter lettuce. Grab a lemon from the lemon tree if you've got one! (Man, we would love to have one.)
