I can’t believe we are halfway through August already! This summer flown by. As I get older, the months and years just keep getting faster. I can’t keep up. Speaking of getting older…my birthday is almost here! One more year in my 20s. Then it’s all downhill haha – totally kidding. I’m excited to see what the future holds.
So this past weekend we were in Pittsburgh for my friend’s wedding and the weather was amazing!! We woke up on Sunday morning and it was 60 and it probably only got into the mid 80s that day. We’ve been in Austin for so long I forgot what it feels like to have a change in temperature in the summer. The past month it has been 100 degrees during the day, and when you wake up it is usually already in the 80s. Now I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, because I love the weather here (especially in the winter), but those colder temperatures felt so nice. It definitely is getting me ready for fall recipes!
But this recipe has nothing to do with fall – it’s all about celebrating summer produce haha! And it is perfect for the hot days we are experiencing (and will continue to experience). It only takes less than 10 minutes to throw together and nothing needs to be cooked. Perfect for those end of summer BBQs or cookouts (if you double or triple the recipe) – or for the nights you are feeling lazy and don’t want to turn on the oven.
I ate this salad as a snack, but it would be great as a side dish. I’m thinking some chicken and quinoa or sweet potatoes would fit the bill for a well rounded plate. Even better, throw it altogether in a bowl and mix it up! I’m all about the fun food combinations!
