July 22: Saint Mary Magdalene Garden Salad

Two of my favorite passages about Saint Mary Magdalene:

  1. “Jesus said to her, ‘Mary!’ She turned and said to him in Aramaic, ‘Rabboni!’ ” (John 20:16) I love that she thought our Lord was the gardener, but all it took was Christ saying her name for her to understand.
  2. “[Mary] said to them, ‘They have taken my Lord, and I don’t know where they laid him.’ ” (John 20:13) My Lord, my Lord, my Lord. Just so beautiful, heart wrenching, and childlike.

Two things to keep in mind about salad:

  1. Sometimes, it’s as easy as throwing the veggies you have leftover in your fridge together: that was us tonight. Throw together bell pepper, cucumber, kale, onion, and tomato, and BAM! You got a salad.
  2. But the real trick to a good salad is the dressing. Recipe is below.

Easy garden salad recipe:

Ingredients

1/3 cup Greek yogurt
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 lemon squeezed
1-2 tablespoons water
2-3 minced cloves of garlic
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon fresh dill

Preparation:

Mix all ingredients until smooth, and then pour generously on your salad…like Mary Magdalene pouring oil on the feet of Christ!

St. Mary Magdalene, pray for us!
