Summer usually leads to eating a lot of salad. But on really hot days, a nice cold salad hits the spot!
This recipe is great if you are entertaining and want to prep something beforehand, as this recipe needs to meld the flavors overnight.
It uses fresh herbs, which I really like since I have a windowsill full of herbs calling for my attention. And it's so pretty!
