Dramatic title aside, this salad recipe is delicious, and one that I have been and will continue to make on a regular basis until summer ends. Inspired by a salad I enjoyed at my friend’s house a few weeks ago, I knew I had to make my own to share it on the blog!
It is full of summery, local to Ontario vegetables, and tastes so flavourful and fresh. When ingredients are good, they speak for themselves, and you don’t need to add much to them. It is a privilege to have access to fresh fruit and vegetables, and one that I do not take for granted!
Here is a recipe for a simple, summery chopped vegetable salad! Please enjoy!
