Minnesota Nice-oise article in The Journal by Jenny Heck of the Mill City Farmers Market 

Check out the article written by Jenny Heck, Marketing and Events Manager for the Mill City Farmers Market, as printed in The Journal. She talks about re-making a classic French dish using ingredients from our local Market.

As an example, she included a recipe from Chef Jenny Breen - Minnesota "Nice-oise" Salad - which Chef Breen has demo'd on two occasions for the MCFM's Mill City Cooks. She used different ingredients for each demo, based on what was in season at the time.

In 2014using cod from Wild Run Salmon

And in 2016, using smoked trout from Star Prairie Trout Farm:

This recipe is a perfect example of one the points Chef Breen makes at all of her demos: Don't disregard a recipe just because you don't have the exact ingredient list on hand.  You can see this in the above two examples of the same recipe - one has asparagus, while the other has green beans; one has cod, while the other has smoked trout; one has green onions, while the other has red onions, and so on.
