I have to admit that I had never heard of, seen, or tasted anything called sorrel until maybe three years ago. And frankly, I don’t remember the exact time I saw the light. It must have been on one of my many visits to the Union Square Farmer’s Market in NY that I had my first taste. Since that time, I am constantly on the sorrel hunt come spring. I even tried growing my own sorrel one year and failed miserably. As for broccoli flowers – same story, different day. I have, however, had many a good red grape!
After a visit to my favorite farmer’s market in the City, with my most favorite guy Bruce, we came home and made a downright gorgeous salad for lunch. We added a bit of Feta but you could omit the cheese and just mix with your favorite vinaigrette.
Farm Fresh Sorrel
Farm Fresh Broccoli Flowers
Organic Red Grapes (Sadly, not from the farmer’s market.)
House made vinaigrette of your choice (Really! You can mix oil and vinegar and whatever else you like and there’s your dressing.)
Oh! And take a trip to your local farmer’s market and find your own sorrel or something you’ve never tasted or tried. Talk to the farmers, taste, shop and enjoy real food. It’s yummy! Enjoy!
