Summer is a time for fresh ingredients... I am talking about those crisp herbs, flavor packed tomatoes, juicy corn and crisp green beans. My garden is in full bloom, so I am trying to use many of my veggies fresh from a block away or from the farmers market.
This salad was so easy to throw together: I toasted some sesame seeds, chopped cherry tomatoes and cut up some fresh green beans. Make a light dressing of olive oil and sesame oil. Toss and sprinkle with the toasted seeds- Yum!
My garden is busting to the seams with orange and red cherry tomatoes. I sliced those up and tossed with parsley and basil. I added some fresh sweet corn (I steamed for about 5 mins to bring out a bit more flavor). I added some red onions finely chopped and dressed with salt and pepper with red vinegar.
What are some other easy, simple salads you make in summer?
