Summer is the best time of year for fresh veggies and fruit. So I thought I would post one of my summer salad recipes. It is a very simple summer salad; without tomatoes because my daughter refuses to eat them, but I love making it with tomatoes too. The secret is in the vinigars, and of course the flavors get better the longer you allow it to marinate. I hope you give it a try
