Spring Salad with Green Warrior | Food Photography Ireland
Spring how are you doing? You are looking well. Spring is one of my favourite times of the year, one can only get giddy at the thought of new life and better weather. Myself and Green Warrior took a trip around the North West to gather the finest ingredients for this tasty spring salad. We collected some salad leaves from the Organic Centre, Rossinver, Co. Leitrim. We wanted to stay true to the crisp freshness of the leaves and so a simple salad dressing was perfect.
Using Local Knocknarea honey and fresh organic french style purple garlic from Gurteen. The use of the salad leaves combined with the intensity of the raw garlic and flowery honey makes this the ideal salad to start welcoming Spring foods back into your diet.
