I don’t want to jinx it, but I think it might actually be spring. A friend posted on Facebook today that she is officially putting her snow shovel away, it literally made me laugh out loud. Watch, now it is probably going to snow tomorrow. I apologize in advance if it does snow, it will totally be my fault. But oh well, I am happy it is finally sunny and warm. I am in love with having my windows open right now. Maybe I’ll make something that smells super yummy later and make the neighbors jealous.
To me spring, and summer of course, means being, cooking and eating outside. Picnics, BBQs, really any reason to be and eat outside and I am in. If they would just make a computer screen that I can actually see when I’m outside, I might just set up my office right on the patio.
This salad is one of my favorite spring and summer dishes. It is fresh, delicious and simple to make. All you do is throw everything into a bowl and stir. This is a great recipe for a backyard picnic, neighborhood block party, or even to make ahead for your packed lunch.
