Really I didn't mean to post yet another lunch post, but maybe you will agree with me that it was necessary. I was getting lunch ready to be cooked. I had the pizza dough all rolled out. The sauce was made from tomatoes canned from last year. The cheese was grated. But I decided I needed a salad to go along with it. Last week I had made a ranch dressing. I hated it and was avoiding eating salad so I wouldn't have to eat it. Silly huh? So I tossed it yesterday. Today I was thinking French dressing which I know I love. I was looking for the recipe in my recipe box. I didn't see it. Where did it go? But I noticed my garlic scape salad dressing recipe. I look forward to it every year.
Last year I harvested scapes in mid to late June during the main pea harvest. Though I did steal a couple of baby peas off the vine today, the harvest of peas hasn't yet started. So I wasn't expecting anything when I glanced out the kitchen window thinking wistfully of garlic scapes. And this is what I saw.
