A Simple Marinated Salad

One of my favorite things to do with fresh summer veggies is to chop them up and throw them together for a simple marinated salad.  Drizzle a little olive oil and vinegar on top, stir in a shake of salt and pepper, and marinate until dinner.  Fresh, simple, beautiful.  The marinated salad.

Serve with spicy salt if you like a little heat.  Our favorite is Vulcan’s Fire Salt from The Spice House.  You can even toss in whatever fresh herbs you have lying around, but you don’t have to.  Make this salad your own.
