We didn't let the rain get in the way of a good time at the market this Sunday! While cooler than all would have liked, the rain (mostly) stayed away, and the show carried on.
This weekend the market hosted Serge Chable from The Wine Lover for our monthly Visiting Chef Series. He prepared a fun and light pear and apple based salad! The fresh greens were picked up in the afternoon just before the series started, as well as the pink lady apples that were sliced up in the salad. Serge previously toasted up some pine nuts, telling the audience that a small skillet, low heat, and pine nuts were all that were needed for the toasty treat- the nuts have enough oils in them naturally that anything additional is unnecessary. The salad was then dressed with a lovely pear and apple cider vinaigrette that was prepped prior to arriving at the market.
Since Serge is the sommelier at The Wine Lover, he also suggested a chardonnay wine to pair with this fantastic spring salad.
Check us out next month for April's Visiting Chef Series!
