Steak Salad with Portabella Mushrooms

venison and portabella salad

Warm meat on crisp greens is the perfect mid-April lunch.

I love salad. Good thing, too, since I’ve got more lettuce coming up in the garden than I could ever possibly eat. I’ve given a lot away, but it just keeps coming! I love it.

Salad with Veggie Crisps and Basic Dressing Recipe

Backyard salad with fresh lettuce, mushrooms and fried rutabaga.

Sit down and get ready…I’m posting a vegetarian/vegan recipe. I’m almost as surprised as you are. Except I have been working on reducing the amount of animal protein I eat recently. Call it a by-product of my studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. I will never eliminate meat entirely (I’ve a got a dedicated freezer for it, by gosh). But I don’t need to eat as much as I’ve been in the habit of doing.

Great Kohlrabi recipe

pan fried chicken with kohlrabi puree

Kohlrabi puree is earthy and rich, pairing nicely with a pan friend chicken breast with portabella mushrooms.

What is kohlrabi? Until I few weeks ago, I didn’t know the answer to that question. I just knew last fall we found seeds for it and planted it on our greenhouse. At the time, I didn’t stop to think about what I’d do with it when it was ready to harvest.

Fast forward a few months. The kohlrabi is exploding. This stuff is huge. Yet Rick and I still aren’t sure when we’re supposed to harvest it and what parts of it we’re supposed to eat. But has that ever stopped me? Nope.
