A Real Dinner, Real Fast!

Saturday morning we went to Gossetts Farm Market in South Salem, NY. We picked up some salad mix and spring onions from Madura Farms, grass-fed beef chorizo from Grazin' Angus Acres, and a loaf of bread from Wave Hill. With little effort we had just picked up dinner.

We fired up the charcoal grill for the chorizo. I whisked together a simple red wine vinaigrette dressing for the salad and quickly sauteed the spring onions in some extra virgin olive oil and apple cider vinegar. That's it. Dinner is served.

The chorizo was amazing! We like spicy food and it fit the bill perfectly. The sweet onions created a nice balance and the salad was a refreshing finish. Yes I know it sounds odd, but as in traditional Italian style we eat salad last.

Making dinner from real, fresh ingredients doesn't have to be fancy or complicated. This meal took no time at all. It was ridiculously simple but SO delicious.

  1. Nice! Of course, I missed the market on Saturday due to running around like a crazy woman. The week before the weather was gorgeous and nearly all of Madura's vegetables were gone by 10:30am so.. be forewarned!

    If you are heading there this week, let me know and maybe I can hand off some Earth Day prerserves.

  2. We got there at about 11am and the veggies were nearly done but thankfully there was some of the lettuce mix still there! I think we're going to try to go again this Sat. I'll definitely let you know.
