simple supper- super salad and fry biscuits
During the warm months of the year we often have very simple, quick suppers and more often than not they are vegetarian . One of our favorite meals is a big old salad. I forage what is in season and pick what is coming out of the gardens. If I have any left over meat bits or fruit and nuts I add them in and then throw a few herbs, spices, cheese on there and some vinaigrette that I made and we have a great meal.
Generally we have either crackers or some sort of bread with the salad. Tonight I didn't have either so I made some fry biscuits to go along with and served them with dandelion syrup. It made a nice spring time meal that took about a half hour to prepare and literally cost pennies.
To make the fry biscuits just make your favorite drop biscuit recipe omitting any fat or oil. Heat oil to 375 and drop biscuits in to oil. Cook until golden brown and turn once. Drain on paper towel. Serve warm
