Summer Salad





So I guess there are a few good things about being single. I can gleefully call this my dinner and not have to worry about adding meat or bread. This is one of my favorite summer suppers. Chop up several small or one large tomato, a bunch of strawberries that need to be eaten, some chunks of fresh mozzarella, some scallions or red onion if you have them on hand, some torn up basil leaves and Brianna's strawberry vinaigrette (THE BEST DRESSING! I pour off most of the oil before I use it to lower the fat but it's great either way.). Mix and enjoy. So fresh and filling. And will make you feel considerably less guilty should you decide to go get ice cream afterwards. Feel free to substitute whatever is in your fridge and needing to be used up like raspberries or blueberries or even squash.
