Renee’s Garden Cookbook – Perfect for the Summer Garden!

IMG_7913adjThe new cookbook from Renee’s Garden is a perfect fit for your summer garden! Not only is it full of delicious  recipes but includes tips on raising your vegetables as well.

I was surprised to find out that planting radishes with beans can enhance the flavor of the beans and help repel bean beetles! Good tip!

 

Since my husband and I are organizing our food choices  according to what we record on My Fitness Pal, I was looking for good salads and salad dressings.  I found a great recipe: Butter head Lettuce with Fresh Raspberry Merlot Dressing. It’s both tasty and beautiful.  I added a little chicken to the recipe to make it a meal and we loved the sweet/tart flavor of the dressing on the buttery lettuce and grilled chicken.

The fresh raspberries ad a bright color and fiber and the Merlot and raspberry vinegar add a nice tang.  This recipe is worth the price of the book!

Oh, and  I think a jar of dressing would make a nice, colorful gift as well!
