The idea of making a garden salad is to simply go out in your kitchen garden, pick your fresh produce and combine to make a colorful and flavorful salad!

Since I grow several varieties of leaf lettuce, its always fun to try a new type or to experiment with a blend.

I picked some “Fizz” lettuce leaves, ” Black seeded simpson” lettuce leaves, red pear tomatoes, bell peppers and some red cabbage.
