When it comes to summer food, what do you look for?
I look for light, crisp, clean, fresh, and flavorful. In the sticky summer heat, I don’t want food that will weigh me down. I crave tastes that will refresh me, enlighten me, and that take advantage of the bounty that summer markets have to offer.
This salad is EXACTLY what I look for.
This quick and easy summer salad is the perfect summer picnic recipe go-to. You can make it up ahead of time, and the longer it rests, the more the flavors mingle. It was terrific the night we had it, alongside grilled steak, but even better the next day when I grabbed a bowlful for lunch.
