Salad Lunch and Learn coming May 23

Published 12:00 am Friday, May 12, 2017

As we approach summer and await all the fresh fruit and vegetables that will be at the Farmer’s Market, I thought it would be a great time to have a Salad Lunch and Learn.

Come join me on Tuesday, May 23, and learn how to combine various lettuces to make signature salads, how to add a kick to your favorite salads, and how to make use of all the wonderful summer produce for healthy and easy salad recipes.

You’ll learn how to give your summer salads a fresh, colorful spin with these quick and easy salad recipes. A few steps and a handful of creative ingredients will wow party guests or add a burst of flavor to any weekday lunch.

We’ll go beyond the standard bowl of lettuce and salad dressing; we will put together unique pairings ideal for a sweet side or a savory meal. With the bounty of gorgeous summer vegetables available from your garden or the farmers markets, you may choose to make salads every day.

Participants who attend will learn how to make new salads and will receive recipes for those prepared at the workshop and many more for later use.

If you are interested in attending this session, you may sign up until May 19. Space is limited, and registration is required.  The cost of this session is $10, and you will need to come by the office to sign up and pay the program fee.

Participants will receive a sampling of food at each session, recipes and other educational materials.  The classes will be held at the Rowan County Agriculture Center, located at 2727 Old Concord Road. There is a limit of 20 people per session and once that limit has been reached, all others will be placed on a waiting list for future sessions.

If you have any questions, give us a call at 704-216- 8970. Sessions will be taught by Toi Degree, Family & Consumer Education Agent. Email her at
