It is hot! Here in South Carolina it is not only hot, but 100% humid. What would be better than a salad on a hot summer day? This salad is refreshing, delicious and perfect with those ripe tomatoes you are growing in your garden. Ok, so maybe not all of us are growing tomatoes, but I’m sure you can get some good ones at your local farmers market.

Here at house Stone we have been enjoying the slow pace of the summer, cooling off at the pool, and enjoying sleeping in longer than usual and going to bed later. Some days are better than others, but generally we are pretty content. Even though I complain about the heat, I am delighting in spending time with my two sweet ones. Enjoy!
