I was in the mood for some texture, so I started with a corn/black bean mix I had ready for a later meal and added a tomato that was ready for eating along with nice crunchy carrots and a delicious baby cucumber. With a simple balsamic vinaigrette, it went well with some toasted baguette and Roots spinach and chipotle hummus (good sopping juices!). Even the nettle/mint tea brew is local, with some blueberries and peaches floating in it for an extra treat.
As mentioned, I did hit the West Asheville Tailgate yesterday, but I forgot to take the camera. Many of the same folks from Saturday were there - I did get the quick shot below as I drove off for a little shout out. Next week I'll be attending the farm to table community dinner after the market closes, and you bet I'll have my camera with me then!
