Simple Garden Salad

salad prepZucchini and tomatoes are abundant right now.  Pretty soon, neighbors will be “ding-dong-ditching” and leaving bags of produce on your front porch.  Here’s a simple salad you can throw together for lunch or as a side dish.

Simple Garden Salad

      • Vinaigrette
      • 3 TBSP Pinot Grigio vinegar
      • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
      • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
      • sea salt and black pepper to taste
      • 1/4 cup fresh herbs, minced (I used basil & parsley)
      • Vegetables
      • 1 medium zucchini
      • 3 medium roma tomatoes, seeded
      • 3 TBSP green onions, sliced
      • 1/4 cup pine nuts

garden saladIn a cup with a lid, add all ingredients for the vinaigrette. Cover and shake until blended. Slice the zucchini and tomatoes into bite sized pieces and place in a bowl.  Add green onions.  Pour the vinaigrette over the vegetables and stir until coated. Cover, chill, and let marinate for a minimum of 3 hours, stirring at least once.

When ready to serve, sprinkle with pine nuts. Makes 2-4 servings.

Variations: add garbanzo beans and/or crumbled feta cheese
