I almost titled this post “Bunny Food,” because that’s what this picture from the farmers’ market brings to mind:
Spring is certainly a beautiful time of year here on California’s Central Coast, but made even more enticing with all of the seasonal produce coming online:

I made us a big salad for dinner; shot the prep but not the final dish, sorry! Ingredients included salad mix, fresh chopped veggies, our first strawberries of the season, leftover roasted butternut squash, and my new obsession: raw cultured shredded green veggies from a company called Healing Movement (I call it Healing Bowel Movement; I’m truly sorry for my bad jokes, but this is how my brain works!!!):
Unpictured: dessert with homemade gluten-free oatmeal cookies…LMK if you want the recipe. Also, I made a tahini dressing for the salad that I’m sharing Friday in a super special post I can’t wait for you to read. Stay tuned and have a great rest of your week!
