Tender lettuce and vacation inspiration

It is a beautiful time of year. While the trees in our area unveil their new spring leaves, the sun-soaked soil is sprouting its own leafy greens. Tony and Chef Cindy celebrate the influx of local tender lettuce landing in our farmer's markets. Then we leave the fruits of our soil for soils abroad as listeners get some advice for upcoming trips to Europe.
