One of the things I love doing in the summertime is making light, refreshing salads, usually with some sort of grain, fresh produce, cheese and a protein. It’s the perfect meal when you don’t feel like putting something elaborate together, or even turning on the oven.
Your quick and easy summer salad can be assembled in 3 easy steps:
Step 1: Gather ingredients for salad. In my case the *ingredients included fresh burrata cheese, salami, cucumber, carrots, avocado, tomatoes, micro greens and quinoa. Glass of wine not needed but recommended.
Step 2: Prep ingredients. I also boiled the quinoa and some pasta for the Englishman’s salad while I was prepping.
Step 3: Combine ingredients on plate. Add a slice of homemade bread. Devour. Repeat.
And that my friends, is how you do a summer salad.
