Quick and Easy Summer Salad

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.
