There are many salads that are great for summer, but there is not better salad than using the ingredients straight from the garden. The juicy fresh tomato and cucumber right from the vine, and avocado that I had to buy because avocados don’t grow anywhere near me, sad. I love growing fresh herbs,simple thing but makes a big difference in health. Do you grow any vegetables, fruits or herbs in your garden?

Summer salads are always the best side dish. When you’re at a cookout or have a potluck, this salad is the perfect dish to bring. A large bowl of it will fly and be gone so quickly. With bright flavors and colors, it’s no wonder. This fresh salad is great side dish that has only the best fresh ingredients.
