One of my favorite things about living in Northern California is the fact that every weekend there are Farmer's Markets, overflowing with a variety of fresh cheap produce from the Central Valley. It is so much fun to go, try the samples (I had a pluot for the first time today!), and then come home and make some deliciously fresh and tasty lunch. Sarah and I pulled together a really tasty grilled chicken salad today with fresh lettuce, carrots, and heirloom tomatoes, we topped it off with strawberries for dessert. YUM!
For those who have never seen or heard of a pluot before, it's a cross between a plum and an apricot and is really tasty!
