a summer salad

 aaaahhhhh summer salad. so easy, so good. 
the little red house blog 
I love taking a handful of this, and a handful of that from the garden and throwing it together and calling it a salad. This was the first broccoli I've had from the garden--it has taken forrrrrrevvverrrr to grow, but it has been fun to watch a GIANT broccoli plant (it could gobble my children) grow out of the ground from a tiny little seed. the little red house blog
A Summer Salad
-greens
-zucchini 
-broccoli
-warm-from-the-sun-tomatoes
-mozzarella
-onion
-basil
-olive oil and balsamic vinegar (I didn't even bother to make a dressing--I just splashed a bit on)
-a pinch of salt and fresh ground pepper

Step One: throw all ingredients together
Step Two: Eat.

If you had a few extra minutes this would be awesome with grilled zucchini and broccoli, 
but I also like it raw and fresh.

The mental image of enormous broccoli and little kids made me smile :) your salad sounds tasty and I am ever jealous of your garden!

what a beautiful salad! i often just toss a bit of oil and balsamic on mine without bothering to make a real 'dressing'. or balsamic and honey or agave is great too.

Yesterday's lunch salad was quinoa, black beans, tomatoes, salmon leftover from Sunday dinner, cilantro and salsa verde. I can't wait to have it again for lunch today.

What a gorgeous salad! Your vegetables are so pretty. I usually like to add some fresh fruit to my salad like berries or apple chunks. I love how it tastes with vinaigrette.
