Recipe of the Day: #5

Here, to make another appearance in the life of my family, is the dual purpose edamame ice pack. 

It cools the computer AND you can eat it!

Summer Mozzarella Salad


The main ingredients are those of a caprese salad…tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella.  From there, add whatever other veggies you want, or whatever ice packs you need to use up so they don’t go to waste.  I added shelled edamame, and chopped up the only two yellow wax beans I found in my garden.

Put it all in a bowl.  Pour olive oil and balsamic vinegar over the top, and sprinkle sea salt (or kosher) over that.  Then gently mix it up.

Then, eat the whole darn bowl of it.  Share if you’re able.

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.
