Salad Sampler

Eileen (and her broken arm),  Prudy, and Dixie

Last night was our annual Salad Sampler dinner at Eileen's house. We had planned to have it at my house, but Eileen took a spill and broke her arm two weeks ago, so we all went to Eileen's instead to make it easier on her. I made a salade nicoise with shrimp, Dixie did a caprese salad of tomatoes and mozzarella, as well as a black bean and fresh corn salad, and Prudy made Nora's peach pie. I wonder how many of Nora Ephron's peach pies have been made in the past month?  I can't remember when we started doing our salad samplers--many, many years ago, but we always look forward to it and it's fun to make our salads with all the best fresh veggies from the farmer's market. Of course we walked around and admired Eileen's garden--it was fun to see the plants we all buy together up in Lancaster County. Her gardens look great, lots of cool things to look at.
