Take a look at my bounty from the Green City Farmer's market this morning. I made sure I got there bright and early in order to get the "good" tomatoes. Check out these stunning heirlooms from Iron Creek Farm:

Arugula Strawberry & Goat Cheese Salad

Nothing screams spring like this tasty arugula salad. First I tossed the arugula in a light sweet mustard dressing, than I added fresh strawberries, walnuts, avocado's and this to-die-for goat cheese from Prairie Fruits Farm:

Here's the recipe for the dressing:

1 TBSP honey mustard (substitute with honey and mustard if you need to)
3 TBSP olive oil
1/2 TBSP lemon
2 TBSP champagne vinegar (substitute with any mildly sweet vinegar)
salt & pepper
