Summer Salads Part 3 – Summer Vegetable Salad Recipe

| August 15, 2014 | 16 Comments

While at the Carp Market I picked up a big bunch of fresh vegetables.  I just bought whatever looked freshest, and added it to my basket.  Here is a sample of what I picked up:

I wanted to make a salad with as much of the produce as possible, as I thought all mixed together it would be so summery and delicious.  I just chopped it all up and then added some dressing and it was the perfect complement to a barbecue dinner.

My kids love this salad, and I make variations of it all year long. You can add onions, lettuce, beans, anything that strikes your fancy. Enjoy!

About the Author ()

I am an active mother of two fabulous kids that make me smile every day. I love to cook old favourites and try out new recipes and never let my kids’ nut and egg allergy get in the way! I am forever dragging my husband all over town to try out the latest and greatest new spots to eat but for the most part I think he’s a willing participant. I would call myself a Foodie but then you would think I was pretentious, so I won't go there. I am an avid reader, pretty much anything I can get my hands on, anytime I can squeeze it in. (Yes that was me you saw reading while I was running on the treadmill at the gym). I love to write and share all my great finds whenever I can! Let’s eat!
