Sophie Uliano's Veggie Cleaner Spray

If you can't buy organic produce, you need to make sure you wash it thoroughly. Use this spray to make sure your fruit and vegetables are squeaky clean.
1 cup water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda
20 drops grapefruit seed extract*
Combine all ingredients in a large container. Then, transfer to a spray bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce, and rinse thoroughly after 5 to 10 minutes.
*Grapefruit seed extract is available at your local health food store.
Champagne Vinegrette
I made my first salad from the garden lettuce last night. I just needed jumbo shrimp, shallots for the dressing and Champagne vinegar to make a grilled shrimp salad with Champagne vinegrette. There was only regular shrimp, no shallots and no Champagne vinegar so I used regular onion and white wine vinegar. Oh well, it turned out well so here's how I made the dressing:
1/4 C. of white wine vinegar
1/2 C. of olive oil
about 1/4 of an onion finely diced
1 T. dijon mustard
juice of 1 lime
about a T. of honey
a little kosher salt and black pepper
Put it all in a blender and blend about 30-45 seconds
It tastes so much better than it looks~~~
