This vegetarian salad is what Urban Acres is all about! You don’t have to slave away at difficult meals. Keep it simple and let the ingredients do the talking.  With delicious, fresh, local and organic Texas produce, your job is simply to arrange it on a plate.

Here’s what we did…

  • Sliced heirloom tomatoes from Johnson’s Backyard Garden in Austin, each topped with a scoop of slow-cooked black-eyed peas from Morrison Organic Farm in Cleburne.   Garnished them with a little sea salt, pepper and olive oil.
  • Sliced some lemony sorrel from Eden Creek Farm in Blooming Grove and spread it around the plate for a touch of green.
  • Nestled in some sliced fresh figs from Gundermann Acres in Wharton County, each topped with a scoop of goat cheese from Caprino Royale in Waco.
  • Sprinkled some peppers from a backyard garden in Oak Cliff.

And voila!  A simple, local meal for you.  Bon appétit!
