Summer Salad

Here's a beautiful little salad I made for dinner tonight. No long story about its origins this time. This is simple stuff--diced veggies, a bit of cheese, some ham, olive oil and vinegar. It was a hot summer day; the salad was cold and crunchy. I ate it outside on our little patio as the sun set.

Here's what you do: cut up some radishes, carrots and cauliflower florets. Or use whatever vegetables you have on hand. It's all good here. Add some chopped parsley, dill and scallions. Crumbled feta, diced ham or turkey and a hard-boiled egg, quartered, work nicely here, too. Dress with whatever you like. Crunch away.

Fabulous -- and those are some great egg yolks.

Just loaded up on a bunch of fresh produce today... a summery salad might be in our future!

Rozmin--Ha, glad you noticed the egg yolks! Those are free-range eggs from some local chickens.

Anya--Will you blog about it?

Lo--Another person to note the yolks--free range eggs really do look better than supermarket eggs.
