It’s late summer and in our region that means it is hot, hot and hotter, and even the gardens of brown thumbed folk are exploding with beautiful produce. Our specialties, the easy things, are great fun, immensely satisfying and delicious. Spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, and herbs are thriving now and are just about jumping into a big salad bowl for an evening meal.
This is a wonderful old standby that is quick, cheap, tasty, forgiving, and keeps really really well. The dressing is delicious, and while a bottled one might do in a pinch, you won’t like it nearly as much, but other than that, add or subtract ingredients as your tastes and bounty inspire you–
This healthy salad keeps for several days. It’s a winner every way you look at it!
