First Harvest Garden Salad

First Harvest Summer Salad
I’m super excited today because I harvested my first batch of spring mix from my balcony garden! Check out my tips and ideas if you’re interested in starting your own garden. Everything is growing but only after a couple of weeks, the spring mix had been doing really well so it was time to harvest and turn into a salad 🙂

The spring mix was paired with grape tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, pear, mint, homemade croutons and dressing.

Homemade croutons were made with a stale baguette, olive oil, pepper and dried rosemary. Bake in the oven at 375F for 7 minutes. I unfortunately didn’t set a timer and burnt some on the bottom but managed to salvage most of it.

I used my chickpea salad dressing to toss the salad in and it complemented the ingredients perfectly!

I can already see the tops of the radishes – probably ready for harvesting next week 🙂
