5 "Damn Easy" Dressings

As you can likely tell, I'm a "Do it Yourself" kind of guy. When it comes to food, if I can make it from scratch, I generally will. Salad dressings are one of those shortcuts that when store bought, usually lead to ingesting poor quality ingredients.

Fiddlehead + Tomato Salad

Fiddlehead + Tomato Salad

This simple side dish merges the flavors of the Mediterranean with one of my favorite spring vegetables, the fiddlehead fern. Having guests over, I felt this would be the perfect side to accompany my yearly tradition of making nettle falafels. Along with cucumber raita, this combined for a glorious spring dinner, shared with loved ones under a clear spring sky.
