Celebrate July 4 with a Red, White & Blue Salad

One of Stacey Swanson’s favorite recipes for July 4 is a wonderful way to mix foods from local producers with food purchased from your local grocery store. Look for the vinaigrette’s raspberry jam and honey from  Pride of Dakota vendors . Spinach is ready in gardens now, so it is possible that the local Farmers Markets will have some ready to purchase. And remember to purchase what you don’t have on hand from your local grocery store. Going Local and celebrating July 4. What a great combination.
