When it’s humid out, when it’s been 90+ degrees for 12 consecutive days and counting, when the idea of turning on the stove to cook dinner makes you want to cry and scurry back to the one AC’ed room in your apartment…that’s when you know it’s truly salad season. This summer I’ve been getting creative, turning anything I have into a “salad,” and the results have been simple and satisfying. Here are a few of the faves, all lightly topped with Greek Feta Vinaigrette:

Spinach, snow peas, asparagus, carrots, tomatoes, hard boiled egg and crispy prosciutto

Steamed broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini with mini shrimp and a hard boiled egg

Spinach, wax beans, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, scallions, smoked salmon, goat cheese


(After taking all these I found this post on food photography. Great tips that I will be trying out soon.)
