simple summer salad
When summer's at its hottest, I often have a hard time motivating myself to cook anything. I like to have a couple dishes that I can throw together without much time or thought when just the idea of cooking exhausts me. I used tomatoes, cucumber, strawberries, and peaches here but this salad works well with almost any summer produce you have on hand.
Simple Summer Salad
1 cucumber, halved and sliced
1 peach, sliced
1/2 quart strawberries, halved
1/2 quart cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons orange bitters
Add chopped fruits and vegetables to a large bowl or dish. Mix vinegar and bitters in a liquid measure and pour over fruits and vegetables. Toss until evenly coated. Top salad with freshly ground black pepper and enjoy!
