This is one of my favorite summer salads! It's refreshing on a hot day and is especially good using locally grown veggies.
You will need:
2 cups of washed and chopped romaine lettuce
2 medium tomatoes, washed and cut into large chunks
3 pickling cukes, washed and cut into large chunks
4 oz ball of buffalo mozzarella, cut into large chunks
1/2 cup chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Olive oil to taste
Balsamic vinegar to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh herbs: recommend thyme, oregano, and rosemary
Combine the lettuce, tomato, cucumbers, cheese and beans in a large bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, and herbs, and toss to combine. Makes 2 large salads.
