Summer Salad

It's about this time of the summer that our garden is in full swing & I start thinking...what am I going to do with all of these veggies & herbs. 

This is our garden:

In order: lettuce, sugar snap peas, thyme, rosemary, basil, green peppers, red peppers, orange peppers, jalepenos, sweet 100 tomatoes (the best- in my opinion,) yellow teardrop tomatoes & good 'old beefsteak to-maters.

The most abundant produce that I have right now is I thought I'd share our most favorite salad recipe.  I cannot take credit for this one...this one is my hubby all the way.  One night, I came home from work & he had created this little number.  And it's been in our meal rotation since.  We don't measure this one out...just throw it all together
