  • Growing Asparagus

If you are tired of just adding tomato, celery and cucumbers to lettuce, try these tips to freshen things up. Use a vegetable peeler to make zucchini and squash ribbons. Consider lettuce a bed for anything, add leftover grilled vegetables or even stir fry. Often leftover dishes are made with some type of seasoning that can act as a dressing if just olive oil is added.
