Here's a side salad that takes full advantage of the great produce showing up a farmers markets and farm stands right now, yet it's light and fresh and so easy to pull together. It's a great recipe to make in the morning, so it's ready to go alongside whatever you're grilling after the beach. You can add some cut up cooked chicken or shrimp to make this a main dish too.
