Celebrating "Salad As A Meal" with Patricia Wells

Yesterday, a refreshing and colorful lunch was prepared at the Walrus and the Carpenter, located in Ballard,Washington. Attending the event was author and James Beard award winning chef, Patricia Wells. What a delight it was to meet her and taste several of the recipes from her latest cookbook, Salad As A Meal, now on sale.

                                                                  Smoked Trout, tarragon and cucumber salad with a tangy horseradish cream sauce. It was as delicious as it looked!
A wonderful light dessert with Yarmuth Farms Chevre  and Ballard Bee Company Honey served with walnuts and crusty French bread.

Another recipe from her cookbook, Chilled Pea and Buttermilk Soup with herbs.

Probably the best salad many of us have had in ages, using the iceberg lettuce this time, Iceberg Lettuce Salad with Bacon and Roquefort.

The new cookbook ~endless ways to serve salads!
