So, I know I haven't posted about food and or crafting projects in a while. A lot of that is due to the fact that I never found my camera charger when we moved into the new house. It's also due to the fact that we have been so incredibly busy & I haven't had time to blog or craft as much. But, we've definitely still be cooking a LOT.
We're doing a summer CSA with Bountiful Blessings Farm, as well as getting weekly groceries from the East Nashville Farmer's Market (Kenny's Cheese, Delvin Farms basil, Peaceful Pastures eggs, & Provence bread). So, we've been able to thoroughly enjoy the amazing bounty of summer. I love summer vegetables. I think tomatoes might be my favorite summer crop.... but I also love love love basil, corn, and summer squash. It's all just so wonderful.
So, I introduce to you my absolute favorite summer salad. Now, I did cheat a bit by buying some avocados that are definitely not grown here in Nashville. But, a girl's gotta have an avocado from time to time, right?
This salad is the perfect summer salad. It's light & refreshing, and so jam packed with flavor. It's vegan, raw, and filled with nutrients.
So, here it is: my favorite summer salad.
|oh, the colors!|
|So many textures and flavors.|
|Who doesn't love a jar full of cilantro?!|
All you need for this salad are:
- an avocado
- a handful of cherry/plum tomatoes
- two small ears of corn
- 1/4 onion (any kind will work... I used white)
- a handful of fresh cilantro
- the juice of 1/2 a lime
Mix all ingredients & you've got summer in a salad.
