Cool Summer Salad

A summer salad is just what is best for a hot day.  Who feels like cooking dinner on a hot summer day? Not me! Let’s keep cool! Making a salad for dinner is simple. This summer salad doesn't require any cooking and only takes 10 minutes to prepare. I enjoy sitting on my shaded deck, eating a whole meal in one bowl!
