Summer Salad - Good all year round.

I am by no means a "food blogger," but I absolutely love sharing my favorite recipes so those around me can enjoy them too! 

Summer may be fleeting, but this salad is good all year round ;) Although Im not typically crazy about dill, this herb makes this dish so refreshing and delicious...good at any summer bbq or even for something lighter at a Christmas party. 

Enjoy!

Add dressing, and a splash of white wine vinegar (not too much, but this gives the salad an extra kick.) 

Stir together and let marinade for at least a half hour.
