Eating Local - A Simple Salad

Mixed Baby Greens with edible flowers (Piedmont Biofarm, Pittsboro, NC)

Arugula (Rocky River Farm, Siler City, NC)

Genovese Sweet Basil (our backyard container garden)

Chinese Chestnuts, roasted & sliced (Cloverfields Farm, Timberlake, NC)

I found this video on roasting chestnuts helpful!

-Combine and rinse greens thoroughly. Add to a bowl.

-Top with sliced, roasted chestnuts.

That's it - simple!

Local items purchased at the Midtown (North Hills) Farmers Market, Raleigh, NC.
