|Harvesting at Abbey Gardens|
We love the positive and welcoming atmosphere at Abbey Gardens.
At Duck Island Cottage we’re also passionate about fresh, natural produce. In June 2012, at Abbey Gardens, the first of the season’s vegetables will be ready for harvesting, including our early summer favourites: peas, broad beans, new potatoes and young salad leaves. The following recipe makes the most of this early crop - and mint and parsley, also in season:
Salad of Broad Beans, Peas and New Potatoes in a lemon and mint dressing
A mix of the following vegetables:fresh peas, broad beans, new potatoes and salad leaves
For the dressing:light olive oil, lemon juice, salt & pepper, mint and parsley
Make a dressing by combining three parts olive oil to one part lemon juice, seasoning with salt and pepper. Finely chop a combined handful of mint leaves and parsley, avoid using the thicker parts of the parsley stalks, and add these to the dressing.
We’ll be back next month with a preview of another one of our exclusive Gardens for June 2012!
