M. made this and insisted I post about it. It was truly a Rockridge lunch so I happily obliged. Read on for what made it so Rockridge.
Lunch was chicken salad on a bed of lettuce with sliced tomatoes and concord grapes.
The chicken salad was made from our previous evening’s roast chicken (Ina Garten’s recipe from Barefoot in Paris-so simple, so easy, so delicious), diced onion, diced shallot, chopped pecans, diced celery, just the tiniest amount of mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and my personal contribution: cumin. Lettuce is from the garden and all other produce is from Market Hall Produce.
M. made fresh iced tea; a custom blend of English Breakfast and rosehip. The rosehip makes for that gorgeous color you see here. She garnished the glass with mint and Meyer lemon.
Plates are Wild Strawberry by Wedgewood. The glass tumbler and the graphic pillow are both from Target. The coasters are from Atomic Garden on College Avenue.
