I am not native in the English language, and since Sophie read "Amelia Bedelia" as a girl, a book I loved to read to her as well, I learned some fun things about the English language.

The lady of the house gives the maid some things to do for the day and she goes about to do it the way she understood:

Mylady: Today I want you first to draw the curtains in the drawing room, then dress the chicken I bought yesterday for tonight. In the afternoon you can prune the hedges ....

And Amelia puts prunes on the hedges draws the curtain in color and puts a fine dress on the chicken ...

 So here is me tossing the salad … 

Or with an evergreen dressing in my house.

  • Salad really anything goes, all the greens, any vegetable than can be eaten raw even cooked and cooled like artichokes, asparagus or corn.
  • fresh herbs such as parsley, chives, oregano, 

Dressing - big size, stores well in the fridge for another 2 weeks:

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ½ tablespoons maple sirup
  • garlic paste, the fermented one as much as you can tolerate 1 tablespoon for me
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • salt, fresh pepper from the mill
