About

Summer is here to stay for a while and the abundance of fresh vegetables is here as well. Tonight the only meal that sounded good was salad. Yes, but not your conventional salad, a salad with a twist.

My mom just sent me from her beautiful garden some exquisite vine ripe tomatoes. She sent me and assortment of sized and shapes . The cute small cherry tomatoes have patiently been waiting for us to eat them since they have arrived.

Freezer door open and I pulled out some wonderful shrimps from Pete at Personal Gourmet. We also have some avocados that are perfect to be enjoyed and our summer salad was created in a flash.

Easy dinner with little time in the kitchen is perfect ending to a wonderful day.
