I have been spending a bit of time in the garden almost daily now, with the warmer weathers.  The sunburn on my back can attest to the amount of sunshine we have been receiving here in Cincinnati.  Though my garden is about half way planted, nothing is ready for harvest just yet.

But a quick trip to the local market was full of springtime goodies.  I especially couldn’t resist the grape heirloom tomatoes.  They were like a little basket of shiny gemstones tempting me to bring them home.  I grabbed a few cucumbers, onions, garlic and herbs and new I had the makings of a great salad!

I can’t wait to bring it to our next barbecue, since there is no dairy it can sit out at room temperature for a time and keep just fine.  If you have any leftovers, store them covered in the refrigerator.

  1. This was perfect for our family picnic today! I doubled the recipe, and replaced 1/2 the purple onion with 1/4 cup scallions (I needed to use them up!).
    This recipe was a hit and I’m sure I’ll make it again!
