Welcome to my lunch this week.
We’ve seen a million “perfectly summer salads” bombarding our Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest boards to the point where we may just scream if we see another vegetable picture.
But indulge me.
This is the easiest and simplest.
I won’t say fastest.
I wish it were, but anytime you’re chopping a million veggies, it takes a little time.
Nonetheless, it’s basic and fantastic. No frou-frou dressing, no cooking, no waiting.
Adapted from Savor author Shauna Niequist’s recipe
Toss a pint of sliced cherry tomatoes in a large bowl
And an orange pepper,
A green pepper,
Heck, let’s add in a red pepper too. All the peppers!
Next, toss in three chopped cucumbers
Then? The best part. Shave the corn off three corn cobs. Completely raw and fresh- no steaming or cooking! It is so delicious and fresh.
Finally, add in a container of crumbled or chopped feta, salt, pepper, fresh basil, drizzle with two tablespoons each of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, toss and eat!
I love summer.
