Oh Virginia…

tasty treats

I'm heading to Virginia this morning...a weekend full of meetings, designing 2 wedding bands, and selling jewelry at the Charlottesville Farmers Market on Saturday morning (come  visit me in space 5 if you're in town.) Hopefully, I'll be coming home with oodles of fresh vegetables from the Farmer's Market to make gazpacho soup on Monday.

  • 1 purple onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, chopped
  • 1 sweet red bell pepper (or green) seeded and chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 1-2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh chives
