Hearty Potato Salad: Part Deux

Eat All Your Veggies Day is probably my second favorite food holiday. It’s no secret I love vegetables. I love the colors, the smells and freshness of flavor. When I bring vegetables home from the farmer’s markets they seem so alive and vibrant.

And then I dive in. My knives moving in that particular rhythm I have of chopping. Carrots, cabbage, onions, spinach, and peppers all meet the blade with precision.

Then pans get heated up. There’s the gratifying sizzle and pop of the vegetables meeting the heated oil, and I let out a little sigh. I love cooking. I love my veggies. I love feeding myself and my Spouse this kind of feast.
