Salads are us!

At the weekend it was the annual Coigach Gathering and what wonderful weather we had - absolutely perfect for The Achiltibuie Garden Pick n Mix salad boxes. Alison and I had people queueing as we were setting up our stall!

Customers were able to fill a box with salads of their choice and almost every customer had our mixed salad leaves, cous cous, pasta, carrot, coleslaws and tomatoes with cucumber, peppers & spring onions. We also made delicious tarlets which proved to be extremely popular. It was great to have people come back to buy salad boxes and tartlets to take home for their supper as well!

We also used some of my Highland Stoneware pottery bowls for the salads and the tartlets looked great on their rectangular dishes.

Back at the Growing house Di is picking salads constantly due to the demand which is great but has meant that I have had to take some of own raft grown lettuces to help out.
