I’ve written much about the sudden and mysterious ways inspiration will strike. Whether it’s the taste of something exotic or a new use for the mundane, you never know when or how it might happen but suddenly it will.
Working full time, going through the process of a divorce and a big move, I haven’t had the time go looking for inspiration. It’s been a while since I’ve written and I desperately needed a kickstart. Well. . . I got one!
Thanks to my dear friend Lou, a visit to his garden, a handful of zucchini blossoms and some peppers — the spell has been broken! Blossoms from Lou’s garden is better than the last bite of my kid’s ice cream cone. It’s a selfless and generous act. That was the incentive I needed to again chronicle my cooking escapades.
It was with this brilliant bouquet (which I could have simply placed it a vase) that this summery salad came to be. Light, crispy and fresh — enjoy!
