Summer In Your Mouth

That's right I said summer in your mouth. That is seriously the best way for me to describe this super simple healthful salad. The sweet burst of the grape tomatoes, the crispness of the cucumbers and the peppery bite of the radish is all of the greatness of a summer salad without wasting any tummy space on lettuce! An added bonus is that it won't wilt in the sun. You bring along your healthy option on a picnic and you can be assured that it will keep fresh!

Oh, and the Princess and I love to mix it in with a couple spoonfuls of cottage cheese! I seriously would eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Super Summer Salad
serves 4

1 English Cucumber or 2 baby cucumbers
1 c grape tomatoes
8 Radishes

1 Tbl Grapeseed Oil
2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced then crushed

Mix together all of the dressing ingredients and set aside. Chop the cucumbers and radishes, set in a bowl. Add the tomatoes. Drizzle the dressing on top and mix. 

You will be very happy that you made a healthy choice today!
